Apart from pin n needle sensation I do get dizziness and it makes me to feel that I will fall down. Even I did complete body checkup with many blood test everything is normal apart from vitamin D3 deficiency. I sometimes feel tired as well.

The pins and needles feeling can be caused by a sitting or sleeping position and is nothing to worry about. However, if the tingling hands or feet come with other symptoms, like numbness, itching, pain or muscle wasting it can be a sign of nerve damage. This can be the result of diseases such as diabetes, a bacterial or viral infection, toxic exposure or an injury. Have you got the diabetes and vitamin deficiencies tests done? Diabetes and B12 deficiency is the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy. Alcohol consumption is also one of the reasons. See your doctor, to find the underlying cause and try to address it at the earliest. Till the time you diagnose the cause. You can try one of these simple tips: Usually, tingling sensation and numbness are caused by sitting in the same position for long stretches of time. The best treatment for this is trying some basic stretches or exercising a little to improve blood circulation. Continuous activity can also trigger tingling in the feet and arms. So, the best way to treat such cases is to lie down and take a nice rest. One of the best ways to ease tingling sensation and numbness is regularly practicing yoga. Yoga helps calm the body and mind, and at the same time also helps enhance and stimulate healthy blood circulation.  Take vitamin B-complex medicine .This is one of the best home remedies for episodic or chronic tingling or numbness.  Include magnesium rich foods in your diet. Magnesium is an essential mineral that not only solves problems, but also helps the nervous and cardiovascular system function optimally.

Try this for joint pains try this. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.

10 Ways to Treat Neck Pain

10 Ways to Treat Neck Pain

Your neck is made of vertebrae that stretch out from the skull to the upper body. Cervical discs that lie between the bones absorb shocks. The bones, tendons, and muscles of your neck support your head and allow movement. Any injuries, swelling or damage can bring about neck pain or even stiffness. 

Many individuals experience stiffness or neck pain once in a while. Usually, this occurs due to poor posture. At times, neck pain is brought on by injury from a fall, playing sports or whiplash. More often than not, neck pain is a normal condition and can be healed within a couple of days. Now and again, neck pain can show serious injury or damage and require a specialist's consideration. In case you have neck pain that lasts persistently for over a week, is serious, or is joined by different side effects, look for medicinal attention quickly.

Regardless of the possibility that you require medical treatment, for example, prescribed medicines for your neck pain, the following treatment measures will speed your recovery:

  1. While an ice compress is good for acute pain, heat therapy is recommended for more chronic pain. Use a warming cushion on a low or medium setting for 15 to 20 minutes every 2 or 3 hours. Take a warm shower instead of one of the sessions. You can purchase single-use heat wraps that last up to 8 hours. Use an ice pack for 10 to 15 minutes every 2 to 3 hours.
  2. Get back to your typical day-by-day exercises when you can. Movement helps your muscles stay solid. Stay away from tiring exercises like lifting and sports that can increase the pain and cause stiffness. Do stretching and neck strengthening activities to keep your neck flexible, strong and prevent stiffness. Stay away from or change any exercises that might bring about your neck pain, for example, sitting in front of your computers or television sets for a long time or doing an excess of overhead work at once. Delicately back rub or rub the region to alleviate pain and energize your blood stream. Try not to rub the damaged area in case it causes pain. Nonprescription creams or gels, may give pain relief.
  3. It can also be treated with the help of pain relievers 
    • ??Acetaminophen, (for example, Tylenol) can soothe the pain. 
    • Nonsteroidal calming medicines, ibuprofen, (for example, Advil) and naproxen, (for example, Aleve), can ease pain and reduce swelling.
  4. Practice good and healthy habits to improve your lifestyle.
  5. Attempt to decrease anxiety and pressure at work and home.
  6. Practice exercises that offer relaxation.
  7. Get gentle back rubs in intervals.
  8. Quit smoking. Smoking lowers down healing because it diminishes blood supply and delays tissue repair.
  9. Exercise regularly, including aerobics and walking.
  10. Practice a good posture.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Your sugar level is slightly higher, so try to keep it under check. Exact location you need to mention. Back pain can be due to various reasons, with age there are some degenerative changes, so better to get x-ray done for knowing the status of your spine, in the meanwhile you can do some hot fomentation then apply some pain relief gel like volini etc. Also you seem to be 10 kg overweight so try to lose that, and learn some back exercises by a physiotherapist to strengthen you core muscles.
