Fatigue as well as dryness and itching of skin can be explained to a thyroid problem.
Pins and needles sensation suggests neuropathy ( that means your nerves are getting affected).

I would like to know,have you been diagnosed as having thyroid problem and are you taking any medication ?

I suggest you to get your thyroid levels (T3, T4 and TSH) done once.

Take Vitamin B complex capsules to strengthen your nerves.

Apply moisturisers twice daily to prevent itching.

Once I have these answers, I would be able to guide you better
Wishing you good health
Thank you.
