Avatar m tn Question...with Anxiety,can you get tingling,numbness and pins and needles...i saw an NERO..the dr told me its stress and anxiety..thanks..Nick....
Avatar m tn is it common to experience pins and needles even prolonged sometimes with anxiety and stress? happens in my right wrist/fingers... had extreme health anxiety...still do.... :( any light on this guys?
Avatar n tn It started out with the feeling of pins and needles in my head but would go away. Now it is throughout my entire body. It's like I'm being stabbed by millions of electrified needles and then it itches. On top of that I have been extremely tired but NO muscle fatigue! I've felt nauseous and dizzy but only about once or twice a day. Also my tongue feels huge but Advil has been helping.
Avatar f tn I have been suffering from pins and needles sensations throughout my body for the last couple of months, and I have no idea what is causing it. Some tests that I have run are my B12 levels (normal) std panel (normal so far) and my thyroid. The only issue with my thyroid was that the level was off the very first time I tested it but then went back to normal the second time. Anyone have any ideas of what might be going on?
Avatar n tn I advise you to get some topical diphenhydramine or pramoxine, both over-the-counter anesthetics. Keep one near your bed, so you can apply to the sensitive areas, and apply when the pins and needles appear. Then keep your appointment and mention the symptoms if they're still there. Best. Dr.
Avatar n tn These are true medical conditions whereby instead of a patient experiencing depression or anxiety, they experience physical symptoms, and once the stress is addressed, the symptoms resolve. Fibromyalagia is another medical condition that leads to whole body pains, and is best treated with medications such as lyrica and neurontin, exercise, and physical therapy. Lastly, I must mention that multiple sclerosis (MS) must be in the differential.
Avatar f tn It has recently been affecting my sleep, that maybe a little bit if anxiety. I get pins and needles and (dead legs) so easily, after a min or 2 in the same position, this is all starting to drive me mad!
Avatar n tn This morning I started to have pins and needles sensations in both feet and hands on and off. No numbness, however---just pins and needles. This has been very weird--once the vertigo stopped I started having tinnitus( although I did hit my head around the same time); once the worry of a tumor disappeared, the pins and needles began. All the while, dizziness remains, I'm a big guy(6'2" 265 and work out) and I have high blood pressure but take medication.
Avatar n tn For the exception of eye problem, since all tests were normal it made sense that it all had to do with my problems with depression and anxiety. And come to find out I was actually having panic attacks. My physical symptoms had been going on for about the last 9 months pretty constant (although they would come and go) as well as a few little episodes the last couple years that I ignored. Not to act as if I know the answer to your problem and I wish you luck.
7251241 tn?1389567812 I do admit I suffer intense anxiety problems on a day-to-day basis. My anxiety on a scale of 1 (being the lowest) and 10 (being the highest, I would say mine is 10. But I feel these symptoms are NOT anxiety related as when my doctor touched my chest wall, the pain was so server that I was almost in tears with it. The pins and needles are random, but they do not feel like your typical "pins and needles" I.E...
324184 tn?1308079803 Hi JaclynDT, The most common side effects of Toprimate are definitely a change in taste and feelings of pins and needles in the head and extremities. The feeling of pins and needles in your head suggests some sensory nerve disturbance, which could be due to nerve compression or simple vitamin deficiency. I think you can visit physician, ask for some vitamin B12 supplements and to rule out other pathology till you can meet your neurologist. Hope this helps you. Bye.
Avatar n tn Both these condition are commonly implicated in the pins and needles problems. And these symptoms are exaggerated by anxiety. Do you have any ?
Avatar n tn The doc said he didnt think it was MS because although I have the pins and needles and a lot of muscle aches and pain at times, there was no sign of muscle waste. It did take 9mths to be diagnosed though!
Avatar m tn Hi Im 23 years old/man and I have a tingling, prickly, pins and needles feeling through out my body. It happens when I get hot. When the weather gets hotter it's worst. I have to find place to cool off. I have to walk around with a bottle of cold water and rag to cool off. It's been going on for months now and I have been tested for so many things. I been tested for thyroid problems and it came back fine. I got tested for B-12 deficiency it was fine.
215461 tn?1331866365 I get the pins and needles feeling in my head too although its more in the top of my head and I get it when feeling really hypo. My (useless) endo also said it was down to anxiety initially. I am now 8 weeks into an Armour thyroid trial (prescribed by the same useless endo who has never prescribed it before) and I only get the feeling now when my next dose is due (or in fact before-hand as I'm still under-medicated).
1293887 tn?1332706447 I called my mum because of course mum's know everything and she reckons baby is on one of my nerves causing the pins and needles. I also had a look online and it said that if you are clacium deficient it could cause the same thing. I have started taking my vitamins again and I think they have made me feel better. It is so crap over here I don't get to see the midwife till 28 weeks. The last time I saw the midwife was 19 weeks because it is my third with the same partner.
Avatar n tn what would cause a dizziness/ spinning and pins and needles feeling?
Avatar n tn Hi, Generalized pins and needles sensations can occur due to anxiety, stress, peripheral neuropathies due to diabetes, B 12 deficiency, thyroid dysfunction, and nerve compression due to disc herniation or prolapse in the spine. I would suggest you to take some B complex supplements and see if they help. Also do some deep breathing exercises to cut down your daily stress. If the symptoms do not improve please consult your GP and get a clinical evaluation done.

Avatar n tn Anxiety over this incident is causing the pins and needles. That is a classical anxiety symptom. One time vaginal exposure don't pose much of a threat. You should get tested to ease your fears though. Three months will be conclusive but 4 weeks is very reassuring. Don't beat yourself up over this. It happens.
Avatar n tn Treatment depends on the cause, but a trial of anti-inflammatories and physcial therapy is generally useful. Pins and needles from the pelvis up is an unusual neurological presentation, pinched nerves in the back usually cause sensory symptoms that go down the leg.
Avatar n tn Heart pounding and pins and needles are symptoms of anxiety. However I would suggest that you see your dr for a physical and complete bloowork just to make sure there is nothing else going on with you. Therapy might not be a bad idea. A therapist can teach you coping skills and ways to deal with your anxiety. I also agree that you should NEVER research your symptoms on the net. The internet is a great source of information but not for medical diganosis.
Avatar n tn lately, she has been complaining of feeling pins and needles all over her body, almost every day. she is also suffering from thyroid problems. can any body help her in getting relief from these symptoms.
Avatar f tn Thanks for your reply! Seems like everything is connected - thyroid dysfunction can cause anxiety too, but in the first place my stress might have led to the imbalance.
Avatar f tn I have been dealing with occasional pins and needles feeling all over my body, not on my skin it feels like its inside of me..I starts to itch the areas to make it stop in that area. I also have had my hands, arms and legs go numb and my ankle's swell too. I went to emergency room like 2 weeks ago because of the numb feeling moved to my face..scary!!! I also been dizzy sometimes when I'm walking I feel like I will fall over..and when all this happens I feel like I'm having an anxiety attack..
