What Is The Cause For Pins And Needle Type Sensation In The Right Hand?

Hello. Sometimes through out the day, with no reason, I suddenly go dizzy and experience a pins and needle type sensation in my right hand? I eat regularly and have never had something like this before. I'm not on any medication for anything or pregnant etc.

Hello,
Thanks for your query.
According to your symptoms it looks like there is compression of nerve in cervical [neck area] spine. This leads to numbness and tingling in your hand.
Most probable reason for your symptoms could be postural problem.
You may need to take x ray spine to see for severity of nerve compression.
Some medication like methylcobalamine with muscle relaxant and analgesic will help, you can take them consulting your treating doctor.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
