    Pins and needles at back of tongue, tiredness. Have bursitis, shoulder pain. Are these connected?

Hi thank you. I have pins and needles at the back of my tongue. This has been happening for about four days and for some reason I now feel mildly anxious when it happens. It occurs sporadically throughout the day. I am also extremely tired and run down and a smoker. Thank you
I also have a bad case of bursitis and shoulder pain on left hand side, could this be connected?

Thanks for writing to us.

Needles at the back of tongue may be due to- depapillation of tongue due to vitamin deficiency.

Corticosteroids has to be administered in such cases.

Meanwhile,maintain oral hygiene well.

Vitamin be c os ules and iron supplements has to be administered.

Avoid spicy foods,smoking.

Hope this helps.
