Thanks for query,
This type of sensation may be due to neuritis but it does not mean you have diabetes.
If your skin is hyper sensitive you may get same sensation.
Ok and bye.

According to your symptoms, you might be suffering from a few diseases. I'm not very sure, but as you stated you are suffering from severe needle pricking sensation, my best guess is that you are suffering from high cholesterol or diabetes.
Diabetes is caused by the high sugar level in your blood. Actually both these diseases is an effect of the food you intake. It is important to control what you eat. Food that contains high cholesterol such as seafood and high carbohydrate should be avoided. High concentration of sugar level and cholesterol in your blood may cause needle pricking sensation and, if more serious, stroke.
My advice to you is to see a doctor, examine the sugar level,hb% and cholesterol level in you blood and take medicine such as Triple Lecithin and Supa PurEPA.
