What causes pins and needles in the fingers and numbness in the feet and hands?

Hi, I have pins and needles in my hand fingers and sometimes in my toes and sometimes feel being numb in my feet and hands. I have done the bllod test. The only not-ok thing is my cholesterol which is just a bit high. Could you please tell me what your idea is about these symptoms?

Hello,

It could be a peripheral neuropathy. Consult a neurologist and get evaluated. As a first line management you can take drugs like Gabapentin for symptomatic relief.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Wishing you all the best.
