Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problem.

The symptoms you describe are callled Paresthesia.

It is an intermittent pins and needles sensation, thought to come from sensory nerves, the fine endings on the skin that are excited and sending signals to your brain.

It can occur due to-

-Radiculopathy- This is a condition, where nerve roots become compressed, irritated, or inflamed.

-Neuropathy-It occurs due to chronic nerve damage. The most common cause of neuropathy is hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar.

Other possible causes are-

-Hormonal disorder- like thyroid hormone imbalance
-Blood sugar disorder
-Liver/ Kidney disease
-Vitamin deficiencies .

You need to get detailed clinical examination and blood work. This includes-
-Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) tests
-Electromyography (EMG)
-Blood sugar levels, thyroid function tests, liver/kidney function tests.

The line of treatment is selected according to the cause.

For the time, you can take Tylenol and try to rest on a firm surface. Also you can take Vitamin B complex supplements. Gentle stretching exercises should help too.

I would recommend that you visit your primary doctor for evaluation and get it managed.

Hope this helped
