A week ago I got an acupuncture treatment due to tightness in my right hip from working out. During the treatment I felt pulsing in the front of my leg due to one of the needles placed in the thigh but was told it's normal. Ever since the treatment my right quad has been constantly tingling. There is no pain but when after walking once I stop I feel the tingling pulsing sensation that is like a vibration. Even when I sit still or lie down I can still feel my leg vibrating. When I touch the leg there is no soreness and the tingling is coming from inside the leg somewhere.
My acupuncturist told me this is not a normal side effect of acupuncture so now I'm worried I have nerve damage which I know almost nothing about.
If it is nerve damage or irritation will it go away on its own and how long should it take? Do I need to see a specialist or get any tests like an EMG done to find out exactly what is wrong? Also, are there any treatments that help with nerve problems like massage or ultrasound?
