Pins And Needles?
0

6 posts in this topic

I've gotten a celiac panel and I'm awaiting the results but I was curious about something.

Occasionally entire sections of my back will get all tingly, like pins and needles, and then go numb for a few minutes.

Could that be related to a celiac induced vitamin deficiency? It's been happening on and off for about two years or so.

Also, I cannot stand up from a sitting or laying down position without getting dizzy and feeling like I'm going to fall over.

I'd love to pick up some supplements for a vitamin deficiency if that would help.

Thanks for the thoughts.

The pins and needles feeling is one of the many possible symptoms of Celiac. I had it in my lower legs, arm, and face. It subsided gradually with the gluten-free diet--a helpful supplement to use would be vitamin B12 (sublingual). I used it for several months--it took about 18 months for the neuropathy to go away completely.

Wow!I never associated that with celiac.I sometimes get that same feeling but its on my scalp.It feels like thiers a bunch of bugs crawling around and when I scratch..nothing happens..it just keeps feeling that way.I had a negative blood test for celiac..but I know Im atleast gluten intolerant..will this kind of thing happen to people with only a gluten intolerance?

I was having pins and needles in my hands and feet and was getting dizzy when standing from a sitting/lying position (low blood pressure). In my case, it was electrolytes (sodium) due to a medication I'm on (indirectly due to Celiac). If vitamins don't solve it I would be tempted to get a basic blood panel done for electrolytes etc (including B12, iron etc.). Not sure about the Celiac connection but everything's inter-related so it's probably possible!

YES. Half my hand or feet would go numb for hours-- totally numb it was sooooo weird-- then I was diagnosed and I've never had it since. I didnt think it was related until I read about it and made the connection. We forget how everything is connected :-)

I know I have really low blood pressure. The nurses would always do it twice and than ask me with raised brows, "Is your blood pressure always that low?" They made it seem like a good thing, but when I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue they said that was one of the symptoms.

Thanks for the responses. I always thought it was weird that the back thing happened. As soon as I get the blood test results back I'm going to go gluten free regardless of the results and see if it helps alleviate all my symptoms. We'll see what happens. With the thyroid disease, adrenal fatigue and possible gluten problems I don't know what symptom is for what disease! :blink:
