Brief Answer: For paresthesia you can take multivitamins Detailed Answer: Hi, I appreciate your concern. Pins and needles sensation may be due to parasthesia , which can be due to many causes like vitamin B12 deficency. In case you are a vegetarian, it may be due to Vitamin B12 deficency.In case you had episodic weakness of upper limb with numbness it may indicate TIA( minor stroke). I would recommened that you monitor your Blood Pressure& Blood Sugar levels alongwith get your Fasting lipid levels and get yourself screened for any vitamin B12 levels. Hope its helpful. please ask if you have any query
