Hello there ngoodman,

Pins and needles could be caused by various different things and it would be wise to consider visiting your doctor. Sometimes cause can be nerve damage but also something more severe. For example one of my friends had the same symptoms and later on he was diagnosed with untrap nerve and since the sensation didn’t go away he needed surgery.

First you will need to do the medical examination and your doctor will probably check you with the tests like B-12 levels and nerve conduction studies. He will probably direct you to the neurologist as well and all this will decide further management plan. I hope that you will resolve your problem soon. Good luck.
