What is the treatment of pins and needles sensation on fingers ?

I ve had a pins and needles sensation in my fingers and toes today with no apparent trigger. Small, painful to touch, red spots are appearing on my fingers and toes. Have not lost feeling in my extremities but my toes feel swollen and hurt when I walk on them. Should I be concerned?

Hello,

It could be peripheral neuropathy. As first-line management, you can take Vitamin B12 supplements for symptomatic relief. If symptoms persist, it is better to consult a physician and get evaluated.

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