I sfepped over something at work I believe it was plastic restrain not certain in the garage but it made a sound though honestly if a person stepped on a needle but they have shoes on can it make a noise when that person steps on on it thanks all I know it was black

I just a bag of chips and few fries drank 3 20 ounces soda like fast now plus meatball sub with hot peppers I feel like burping but can’t cheat hurts around where the heart is pins and needles on feet and hands and like middle of chest hurts pins and needles on face can stress lead to this or the indigestion thanks

Brief Answer:
This could be just from stress.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,


Yes even the male can have the same pleasure.
If you have shoes on there even if it was needle there is no risk for infections.

This situation could be related just with stress but I think that you should do an electrocardiograme just as a precaution.

I hope my answer helps you.
