Hi,
pins & needle sensations known as paresthesia is suggestive of neuropathic cause.
These symptoms are likely due to the impingement of nerve root at your upper back spine (cervical or thoracic region).
Physical therapy ( different from chiropractory) usually helps.
But, you need to see a doctor preferably a neurologist for further evaluation with imaging studies.

husband talking with another person with the same problem had a problem with his heart, a blockage. is that possible?

Expert:  doctornihil replied 7 years ago.
Unlikely.
You do not experience any left sided chest pain or shortness of breath with exertion.
You do not have any pre existing disease.
You are young 37 yr old female putting you at lower risk for heart disease.
Lastly, chiropractor treatment helped your symptoms 'little bit', which will not be the characteristic of heart disease related pain.
Hence, neuropathy or radiculopathy is more likely in your case.
