Bloody pins and needles!

I've had pins and needles in my fingers and feet all day and it's driving me nuts! I never usually get them, unless I've actually sat on my foot till it's gone dead or something. Seems a little odd, and more than a little annoying, that they appeared out of the blue like this.

Would you be worried, or am I just showing exceptionally low levels of tolerance for discomfort? Wink

Yes = chill out, it's pins and needles
No = does sound a bit unusual

Am I being unreasonable?

Ring 111 for advice - if they are happy I would still seek medical advice tommorrow if persists. It's not normal - as you obviously know. Don't feel silly about seeking advice. Have you been stressed?

Not really more than usual, haha. It just seems odd!

Hello - that does seem odd. I would ring 111 and see what they think. Do you have any underlying medical conditions? Xx

It does seem odd. Best to get it checked out.

I don’t want to worry you, but pins and needles can be a symptom of certain neurological conditions. Not saying that will be the case with you, but worth getting a medical check-up.

I know its given as the answer to everything these days but you havent had COVID in the last few months have you OP. I have had persistent pins and needles in my hands since 3 months after I first got sick last spring. Only really starting to go away now, nearly a year later.

Please do speak to your GP if you still have this tomorrow. It’s likely nothing but as others have said should be checked to rule anything serious out.

Thanks for the advice! I'm hoping it'll just clear up but yes, will seek advice if it doesn't.

I have heard that re Covid - but no, I haven't had it!
