Pins & Needles and Dizziness



 
 
 
Do you Wake Up with Pins & Needles or feel Tingling Sensations in your Arms or Legs?

Pins & needles in the hands or feet is not uncommon symptom. Sometimes the pins and needles can affect a leg or foot on one side sometimes both sides can be affected. The same pattern can occur in the hands and arms, depending on what is causing the symptoms.

Pins and needles are most commonly associated with trapped or irritated nerves. This can occur in the spine or also in the musculature/tissue through which the nerves pass. Circulatory problems and some neurological conditions can also give rise to pins and needles.

As specialists we will comb through the history of your presenting symptoms/problems and will conduct a thorough physical assessment which sometimes can include x rays so that the cause of the pins and needles may be determined and the problem diagnosed.

These types of symptom can be very worrying for anyone experiencing this problem and sometimes these symptoms can be accompanied by pain or a lack of strength in the affected area. For this reason it is vital to determine the cause of the problem so that the problem may be sucessfully managed. 

Simply put, the cause must be found and corrected.
