Q: WHY DO I OFTEN GET PINS AND NEEDLES IN MY HANDS AND FEET?

Tingling hands, feet, or both is an extremely common and bothersome symptom. Such tingling can sometimes be benign and temporary. For example, it could result from pressure on nerves when your arm is crooked under your head as you fall asleep or it can be more severe, such as nerve pathology if you’re diabetic.

There are many causes of this peripheral neuropathy including viruses, systemic disease, nerve entrapment, alcoholism, toxins and very often missed is a vitamin B12 deficiency. It is therefore important to seek medical advice if this happens frequently
