Pins and needles sensation in arms, joint and back pain. History of reynauds attacks. Causes?

Hi, I ve been having problems with both of my arms, I have had a pins and needles sensation in my arms , first it was just when I slept on that arm, but it s been getting worse and now I get it just from typing on my phone, the joints in my hands are also hurting. I have reynauds, and the sensation is similiar to that of a raynauds attack, but more painful and sometimes I wake up n my arm is completely dead, like rubber. Tonight I m also experiencing back pain , I don t know if this is related to the pain in my arms or not, I went to see a doctor but he said he s not sure what it is as he has never heard of anything like it before, he s a young doctor so I m wondering maybe that s why? Someone please help.

symptoms that you presented have multiple differential diagnosis, it can be poor posture resulting in scalene syndrome or TOS or may be due to raynaud itself. since raynaud has nothing to backpain mainly indicate postural issues. to clearly diagnose please make a visit to your physiotherapist to rule out muscle compressing the nerve due to postural issue and if not then it can be due to raynaud which need further diagnosis
