Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The pins and needle feeling in your hands when having a bowel movement (bm) is related to a possible neurological reaction to a straining during bm.

Have you been constipated recently? Heavy straining and/or taking too long to pass the motion might have caused such feeling.

That was nothing worrisome, if it will repeat again for a few more times, then, further examinations would be advised.

All the best!
