Pressure-related pins and needles
I have pins and needles in my foot (under side) and sometimes also in hands (palm side only, fingers included) but only when they're pressing on something.
So it feels normal in all those areas, until there is pressure around some specific points and then the pins and needles sensation kicks in. The relation between feeling and pressure seems linear, as I lean fully on those points it gets rather painful.
I'm 55. Non smoker, don?t smoke and only occasionally drink. Don?t have diabetes but am on mild medications for BP (Atenolal 50 Mg + Amlodepene 5mg), for mild Cholesterol (Astrovastin 10mg), and mild Hypothyroidism (eltroxin 100mg i. E. 1tab) daily. Height 170 Cms, Weight 89 Kgs. Thanks.
