welcome dear
pricking pain is mostly refer to less blood supply to the particular area and also if blood has come back normal in such area attributed to body's natural reaction as needle prick pain,low metabolism also a cause for it.test your HB,SUGAR,RA factor in blood.

I am 26 years old. Female. & have a couple concerns. Fr a little while now I have been extremely tired. Several months. With that I have EXTREME constipation like 10-20 days with no BM. Also I have gained about thirty pounds in a matter of two months and cannot seem to get it off. I have dark circles under my eyes as well. I have not had a cycle in over two months. I am not pregnant. I had blood work down to look at my thyroid and the TSH was 1.82. My primary said that was normal. My WBC was 4.3 and the RDW was 11.4%. Also my ast 33 and alt 32. I am really tired of being so tired. I generally run a high pulse in the 100s. Can sleep all day. Lately I have developed headaches in the evenings. Three years ago I had a child via cesarian because my blood pressure was too high (don t know I that s relevant)! I just want some help and my doctor doesn t seem to care. Also I supposively have adult ADD. Which I guess contributes to my forgetfulness which is worse as well. Thank you!(also heart disease, cancer, hypertension, thyroid disorders. Are in family hx)

Thanks!I am very tired today and feel like I would like to go to bed....which I never nap in the day. I take blood pressure meds and just took my blood pressure. Not bad. 103/62 with a 65 pulse. I have my own wrist gauge, and an excellent blood pressure program which I log my pressure maybe every other day or so. Gives my doc wonderful readings over a month, 6 months, etc. if he needs them. I have had the band calibrated. Why am I soo tired. I have a cat that is 22 and has hyper-thyroid and that depresses me badly.
