Pins & needles in finger tips and toes, especially right hand with all fingers bar index and thumb displaying severe symptoms. skin hyper sensitive to touch, especially scalp.

Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms you are having can be due to a muscle spasm in the neck and back area or cervical spondylosis. Appropriate doses of muscle relaxants are required for adequate relief. You can do hot fomentation and avoid using a pillow.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
