If you have digestive problems, including diarrhea or constipation, you should be checked for gluten intolerance. Other common symptoms are fatigue and a rash called dermatitis herpetiformis. Gluten intolerance interferes with your body's ability to absorb vitamins and minerals and could cause both of your problems. Visit the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) website to get the latest information.
Your symptoms could be caused by quite a variety of conditions, and I would urge you to see your doctor for an assessment. After a more detailed history, exam, and possibly some tests, your doctor should be able to give you better guidance. Good luck, and let us know what happens.

The tingles, numbness, and headaches should be examined more closely by your physician since they could be anything from nerve-spine compression to digestive issues.  Testing can help to clarify the cause and what course of treatment may be required.  The sooner you can do that, the better you can get proper care, and resolve any worries about your health.  Take care, frog.

Tingling and numbness with headaches can be caused by a number of things, like an injury, herniated disk, diabetes. It is wise to see a doctor to find out the cause so you can be treated for the underlying cause and not just the symptoms.
I would see a neurologist.  It could be a number of things.
