Pins and needles, also known as paresthesia, is a tingling or prickling sensation most commonly felt in the hands and feet. It can be caused by pressure on a nerve, poor circulation, or prolonged sitting or standing in one position. If you’re experiencing pins and needles in Sydney, Harrington Chiropractic can help.
What Causes Pins and Needles?
Pins and needles can be caused by a number of different conditions, including:
• Pressure on a nerve: Pressure on a nerve can be caused by sitting or standing in an awkward position, or from sleeping in an uncomfortable position. It can also be caused by wearing a watch or bracelet that is too tight.
• Poor circulation: Poor circulation can be caused by a number of factors, including smoking, obesity, or diabetes. It can also be caused by sitting or standing in one position for too long.
• Vitamin B12 deficiency: Vitamin B12 is essential for nerve health, and a deficiency can lead to pins and needles.
• Alcohol and drug use: Alcohol, drugs, and certain medications can all cause nerve damage, leading to pins and needles.
• Stress and anxiety: Stress and anxiety can cause muscle tension, which can lead to nerve compression and pins and needles.
