Are Pins and Needles Driving You Nuts?
Pins and Needles, numbness and tingling, peripheral neuropathy, diabetic neuropathy, complicated radiculopathy, call it what you will but whatever you call it, it’s no fun! Numbness and tingling in the arms and hands, or legs and feet can rob you of your quality life in ways that other symptoms and pain will never do. Patients often reports that they feel that they have a “balled-up” sock sensation under their feet, that they feel they are walking on rocks all the time or are constantly dropping items or unable to pick things up because of the debilitating symptoms.
Peripheral neuropathy can have several causes including complication of chemotherapy, diabetes, nerve injury due to trauma, infection or tumor and others. The symptoms can vary from mild to very severe burning pain, with loss or altered sensation in both hands and feet. The symptoms can arise many weeks or months after a car crash, can come from nerve injury during surgery and can also be a complication of weight gain.
Loss of sensation in the hands robs you of your main tool to experience the world through touch. Imagine not being able to feel your child’s hand in your, not be able to feel the touch of your spouse or lover or not knowing that you have been injured because of the nerve damage. Many diabetic patients must have limbs amputated due to complication of cuts and infections that they are unable to feel because of the peripheral neuropathy. Many patients that experience the pain of sciatica and radiculopathy have complications that lead to numbness and tingling in the feet, side of the leg or toes.
