The Pin Pricking is a single prick either in the toes or the bottom of my feet.
There is no burning, tingling in association.
There is no history of Diabetes in my family...I am on Blood Pressure medicine, but my blood pressure has been good since on the medicine.
The symptoms will last a second and may not come back for hours or sometimes in just a few mins...it literally feels like I was poked with a pin....it's not like the pin sensation stays or continues but rather a poke and gone...sometimes it's pretty hard.
Im just on blood pressure medicine and I recently starting seeing a nutrionalist and he has me on different types of vitamins and minerals
I do consume alcohol a few times a week!
Are you still there?
Hi,Thanks for providing more information.
As per your description,possibly such intermittent pin pricking sensation in feet can be caused due to nerve irritation in it's path.
And you may feel such symptoms at certain position.
So you should do massage with muscle relaxant ointment on affected area.
Try OTC Advil which can relieve any sort of inflammation around nerves.
You can soak your feet in warm water for 5-10 minutes.
Hydrate yourself with plenty of water.
Do stretching exercises.
Physical therapy can be effective.
Do regular exercises.
Elevate your legs.
Avoid prolonged hours of sitting in same position.
Other potential differential diagnosis may include peripheral neuropathy.
If your symptoms'll persist then consult your doctor.

Does this sound like Diabetes or anything to be super concerned about.....I do sit alot at my job.....and I do have alittle pain in my lower back, could it be that I need an adjustment???
Thanks for the follow-up.
As you have lower back pain so possibly you have nerve compression at lumbosacral spine resulting in Lumbar radiculopathy.
So you need to undergo X-ray/MRI of lumbosacral spine.
You have history of prolonged hours of sitting so it is an aggravating factor.
You should take short breaks.
And do stretching.
Diabetes can also cause such symptoms however in chronic cases of uncontrolled blood sugar levels.
So in my opinion,you should make an appointment with your family doctor and your blood sugar levels should be checked.
I just had a complete blood test done about 1.5 months ago and he told me everything looked good......
It may be possible that your blood sugar levels were fine.
So we consider Lumbar radiculopathy be a most possible cause in your case.
Try measures as i told you for few days.
And if your symptoms'll persist then make an appointment with an Orthopedist.
You can go for physical therapy as well.
Most likely your symptoms are related to poor posture and prolonged sitting.
It's good to change your chair if it's uncomfortable.
And maintain a good sitting posture.
Ok, thank you so much!
You are most welcome.
