Dodgy pins and needles
This could be nothing, and i find this forum more helpful in some ways than most things.
I sometimes get like a pins and needles feeling in my hands or feet, and no its not because i've been sitting on them weirdly or sleeping weird, what could this mean?
poor circulation? it usually happens when you dont use a certain body part for a long time or if the circulation is getting cut off.
Did a quick search ......
* Remaining in the same seated or standing position for a long time.
* Injuring a nerve supplying the body part where you feel the sensation. If you have a neck injury, for example, you may feel the sensation anywhere along your arm or hand. Similarly, a low back injury can cause sciatica -- a sensation of numbness or tingling down the back of your leg.
* Lack of blood supply to the area. For example, plaque buildup from atherosclerosis in the legs can cause pain, numbness, and tingling while walking. (This is called claudication.)
* Pressure on the spinal nerves, as from a herniated disk.
* Carpal tunnel syndrome. This can cause numbness or tingling in your wrist, fingers, hand, or forearm.
* Certain medical conditions, including diabetes, underactive thyroid, multiple sclerosis, seizures, or migraine headaches.
* Abnormal levels of calcium, potassium, or sodium in your body.
* Vitamin B-12 deficiency.
* Transient ischemic attack (TIA) or stroke
* Certain medications.
* Toxic action on nerves, such as that from lead, alcohol, or tobacco.
* Radiation therapy.
What are you doing when this occurs?

And in answer to razorcut's question, it usually just happens out of the blue, or it actually wakes me up, but then i can understand that i'm probably just sleeping weirdly.
