There are many conditions that can cause tingling of extremities like the hands and feet. It is best to consider the symptom of tingling with your other symptoms to come to a conclusion on exactly what is ailing you.
A pinched or compressed nerve can cause tingling when any nerve in your body is forced with excessive pressure. A herniated disk, sciatica, carpel tunnel syndrome, bone spurs and joint swelling are examples.
Panic disorder causes terror and comes without warning. The National Mental Health Center cites these as some symptoms to watch for: "pounding heart, dizziness, nausea, shortness of breath, shaking or trembling, choking, sweating, feelings of unreality, and numbness or tingling." (See References 1)

When normal blood flow through vessels in the body is obstructed, tingling in the extremities can occur. Some causes are Raynaud's syndrome, atherosclerosis, buerger's disease and frostbite.
