    Numness , pins and needles in feet,leggs and hands.

    I have been having loss of feeling in my hands and feet,leggs, for the last yr or so, with every month or wk, feeling like it is getting worse. But last wk was a very painful feeling. It always starts with a freezing sensation that I get on my hand and feet, then they go numb and feel really heavy, and then the needles comme. Well last wk I thought for sure I had 30 people with needls priking my hand. It was very strange, and extremely painful. It will be interesting to see what the neurosurgon will say. Sometimes, I am flat on my face going up the stairs,because one legg just does not move. The needles are comming back as I am trying to write this. I quess it will be all for now. Let me know what any of you are doing to get ride of this. It is always appreciated. BUA Cic.

    Geez... Hope the surgeon does something.

    I get it a bit in my hands when I fall asleep, and then wake up but try to shake it off. My feet I get it when I sit a certain way a bit. And again my hands at times when I have pain in my thoracic screws(T5-T6).
