also, may i ask what symptoms you were dealing with prior to your procedure?

that the veins restenosed immediately or formed a clot that blocked it worse than it had begun, hence the worse symptoms than you started with (see an IR asap for a doppler ultrasound);
that a nerve running alongside the vein was damaged during the ballooning (this should heal on its own over many months);
or ... ?
I am sorry that this is happening to you. We have had a handful of reports of tingling in the hands or legs that begins immediately during or after the procedure that can persist for months after the procedure. When it's reported, it's those three things that cause me to potentially group yours in with those cases, that it's immediate, it's a new symptom of tingling, and it persists. When I asked in Dr. Sclafani's thread, he made a guess that it could be compression to a nerve during the ballooning, but he really didn't know. I think since our central nervous system is already damaged, any damage to our peripheral nervous system is magnified.
But first thing first, do you have access to an IR with a doppler ultrasound to check your neck?
