pins and needles
I have been experiencing a lot of pins and needles (sometimes numbness) in my feet, lower legs and hands and lower arms. It happens quite a few times a day - could this be a circulation problem? or what could this be - I have had it for about a month and a half now
Thank you

Wendy, it may be due to a circulation problem, but it may also be because of a neurological problem or even an electrolyte disturbance. The best would be to see your doctor and have it sorted out. Good luck.
