I am 17 years old and I'm frequently experiencing a pins&needles-like feeling all over my upper body, including my head. It goes on for quite a while and is vary annoying. There's no warning it just happens. I was wondering whether it could be a nerve that's being pressed. Please Reply ASAP.

Hi Nico
could be low blood pressure, low bloodsugar or even anxiety. A nerve will only give you symptoms in one body part like an arm. I think you should see your doctor for some tests.
