welcome to HealthcareMagic
Yes the sensation of pins and needles is due to your slip disc and the reason is the stiffness of the muscles when you try to get up after a long gap when you sleep.So please get treated for the slip disc and you can start on vitamins like Neurobion-plus and even calcium to help relieve the sensation of pins and needle in morning.
