    Dodgy pins and needles

    Hello all,

    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?

    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?
    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.

    lol, you're such a hardass.

    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.
