Default Tingling All Over...Normal?

My dad has been diagnosed for about 18 months now...it started in his arm, then went to his leg, then to the other leg and now starting in his other arm. He can't move his left arm (which has totally atrophied) or leg at all (hasn't been able to really move them for about a year), but they tingle all the time...as do his other leg and arm. Is this normal? Should he be able to feel anything? I know this sounds dumb, but I would think that he shouldn't be able to feel much of anything.

Thanks!

I haven't ever had tingling all over. My feet often have a "tight boot" sensation. When I used to lie on my sides to sleep, whichever side I stayed on eventually became numb. I didn't change until one morning I had burning nerve pain--atrophy caused this, I believe. It is strange because as you say, with atrophy and paralysis, you wouldn't expect sensory things.

Just because the muscle is dead doesn't mean all the nerve endings are too. You can have feeling for quite sometime.
