Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for query. Relax. What you are reporting is a normal phenomenon. Hyperventilation is related to transient imbalance in the body's acid-base balance. This either results in numbing or pins & needles sensation. However, considering your social and inter-personal situation an evaluation of your coping skills, personality profile as well evaluation for an underlying mood/anxiety disorder is required. Hence, you require a consultation with a psychiatrist in this regard.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

First, do not worry, as it is not a serious medical condition. Excessive stress and anxiety frequently lead to hyperventilation which can lead to above symptoms. So, do not take much stress and relax yourself by breathing exercise and daily morning walk.

You can discuss interpersonal issues with close friend/family member for solution or you can meet some psychologist for supportive counseling. If symptoms persist, then you can get yourself evaluated by psychiatrist for treatment.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
