Hi, welcome and thanks for writing in.
Pins and Needle sensation at age 73 is definataly not a menopausal symptoms. It is possibly related to two differential diagnosis. first is heartburn causes by reflux of gastric acid. Another is possibly age related spondylosis involving cervical and thoracic region.
I would like to advise please consult your physician if symptoms are troublesome. Otherwise no need t worry too much as these are common symptoms in old age.
Hope i have answered your query, If you have further concern, please let me know.

Regards.
