Thanks for the query

Feeling of pins and needles alone doesn't suggest simple partial seizures. A remote second possibility of aura (the feelings just before seizure is likely) can't be excluded.

Just don't worry. You may visit your physician if this recurs and disturbs you or the typical signs that you had earlier

Best wishes

Yes. You should

First of all we need verification whether these new episodes really were seizures or some other paroxysmal phenomenon. If they were seizures then we need to find out the reason for them. Most important cause is drug default. Other reason is inadequate dose as per your weight. So all these things will be better explained by specialist
