Numbness Pins & Needles

Numbness is a condition where you can’t feel anything in part of your body, usually a patch of skin. Pins & needles are a tingling or prickling sensation that is often felt in hands or feet.

Mostly this is due to pressure on nerves or the blood vessels that supply nerves. This often happens after you’ve been in an awkward position, like sitting cross-legged, or it may be the sign of a trapped nerve. Occasionally, it may be the sign of a more serious underlying problem such as diabetes or Multiple Sclerosis.

Commonly symptoms are not due to serious causes, however, when ignored things can rapidly progress. To sum up it is sensible to have things checked by a professional. Above all care can have a great benefit or can ensure the right management is implemented early.
