Re: tingling/burning sensations
From my own experience I learned that tingling, numbness in the feet, lower legs, hands, arms can come from a diabetic/pre-diabetic condition. I also know that certain nutrional deficiences can cause symptons such as this. I think it might be the B vitamins especially B12, and iron. All can be checked with simple blood tests.
Anxiety can cause numbness and tingling in the extremities as when we're anxious, we can hyperventilate causing an imbalance of the oxygen and carbon dioxide ratio in our blood. When hyperventilating, it works wonders to use a paper lunch bag, gather the top together with your hand, then breathe into the paper bag. Both inhale and exhale in the bag for as long as it takes for symptoms to subside. I know it works for me.
Don't know enough about electrolyte imbalances to comment other than when I used to work out like a freak, I would drink electrolyte replacements drinks or I would experience leg muscle cramping, nausea and so on.
Hope this helps,
