Having pain through out the body, generally near joints. Recently quit smoking. What is causing this? Can this be food related?

I have been having a pins and needle feeling throughout my biody for the past 4 or 5 months. I quit smoking because I thought it was somthing serious but I still have the feeling. When I lay down at night for bed it doesn t bother me, seems to go away. About an hour after I wake I start feeling the pins and needles again. Sometimes after I eat something but doesn t have to be food related. I m just wondering what is causing this, It s driving me crazy. The pins and needles are usually felt in my feet , ankles, legs, arms, shoulders, neck and sometimes my face

The condition you are describing is called hyperesthesia and there are several causes for this condition.
Food allergy or intolerance is NOT one of those causes.
You have not mentioned your age or gender, as spondylitis of the neck (usually aged above 45 years) may be responsible. Suggest plan a visit to a Neurologist for a MRI neck/spine, along with blood tests (glucose etc).
