Suggest Treatment For Pins And Needles In Legs

I suffer from various health problems but there is one that is becoming very bothersome & have not addressed it w/ any of my doctors because I don t know WHICH ONE to bring it up to. I keep getting a pins & needles sensation when my body perspires or gets hot. It is all over my body but primarily my LEGS. It feels like needles are being stuck into all my pores simultaneously & is extremely uncomfortable. There are no pins & needles in the feet which I have heard of. The sensation does not extend down that far. No numbness accompanies the needles either. For example, I can walk by a oven or heater & the needles in the pores will occur.

Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. Tingling hands, feet, or both is an extremely common and bothersome symptom. In many cases, however, tingling in the hands, feet, or both can be severe, episodic, or chronic. It also can accompany other symptoms. such as pain, itching, numbness, and muscle wasting. In such cases, tingling may be a sign of nerve damage, which can result from causes as varied as traumatic injuries or repetitive stress injuries, bacterial or viral infections, toxic exposures, and systemic diseases such as diabetes.

Diabetics, idiopathic, Kidney and liver problems, alcoholism and host of other problems could be the cause of the pins and needles. You should talk to your physician to get a thorough check up.

To provide you some relief, such pins and needle symptoms are also possible due to anxiety and obsession. Therefore, try to ignore the symptoms for a week and see.
