Legs, feet & abdomen
I get pins & needles in my legs creeping up my one side and into my back and when I walk it feels like water under my feet. Also I get very bloated and hard abdomen, it isn't flatulence and comes and goes. Could you please help me?

Hi Joy,
the needles and pins are an indication that you have a pinched nerve in your back - you must get an x/ray and referral to orthopod. The bloating and swelling of the abdomen can be irritable bowel syndrome - but you will have to let your dr examine you and prescribe some medication.
