Developing Weird Pins And Needles
0

4 posts in this topic

Has anybody had problems with pins and needles sensations? I can have them in my arms and legs, scalp or even face. The worse ones are in my right arm. The are recurring sharp pin pricks mostly in one spot. I scratch them and they go away for a bit. I don't seem to have any rash or skin problems in the areas it. happens. at times it even feels like it's all over...traveling. Driving me nuts.

Try adding some sublingual B12 to your vitamin regime.

That can be your B complex vitamins, yes.  I don't know your current weight but if you are on the lighter side, it may behoove you to increase your calorie intake.  Sounds strange, I know.  I have had some peculiar sensations myself when I was incredibly underweight for my height.  As my weight restored, the sensations subsided.  

 

Also, don't become too inactive.  Get outside and get some sun.  Use your hands.  Be as active as you can.  I think sometimes we can become to inactive and it causes us to deteriorate in strange ways.  As we use certain parts of our bodies, our body then concentrates on healing what we used.

 

For example, early in my diagnosis, after being quite inactive, I decided to detail my car.  My wrists remained incredibly weak for a solid month.  It was so strange.  I also had tingling in some fingers...  But it as I kept getting off the couch, it kept getting better.  SLOWLY, but better.

***I don't know about the other Bs, but my B12 was actually high the last time they checked after being on extra B12 for about 6 months. I do need to get more excersize. Getting better at it, but still having bouts with fatigue. It's calmed down a bit now, but has been coming and going for a couple of weeks. Just been hoping it's not another form of something autoimmune:( ***

    • hey i've been vegetarian for 8 years and gluten free for almost a year. its difficult since they are kind of opposites. i actually just noticed the advertisemnts from the cancer counil here is australia now has meat listed next to alchol, cigarettes and the sun. a few years ago when i read about it, it seemed hot dogs and super processed meats like salami were the only issue. which i only remember when i see a sausage sizzle to raise money for cancer lol  but it surprised me that now the guidelines are including red meat as well and smaller amounts. https://www.cancercouncil.com.au/1752/cancer-prevention/diet-exercise/nutrition-diet/other-foods-nutrients/meat-and-cancer-3/ so i would reccomend easing into it and slowly replace meat with alternatives to make sure you are getting enough protein etc get your iron and b12 levels checked every now and then. buffalo cauliflower and eggplant schnitzels are two of my favorites. you can also make alot of cheeses and sauces out of nuts and tofu. i also eat alot of falafel, hommus and tahini. i can send you some links to recipes if you like
    • I'm going to guess the additive effect of a few months of mystery CC glutenings (since resolved), plus heavy training load. The last time I had my antibodies/iron checked in Feb 2016, both were good. Since diagnosis to that point, I'd been taking iron supplements only sporadically, but stopped altogether at that point as my ferritin was quite high (hemochromatosis runs in my family, so some concern about taking too much iron). Unfortunately, my DH is only speculative - I've seen a dermatologist in an attempt to get it biopsied/prescribed Dapsone, but she was convinced it had to be acne as it "did not look exactly like in her textbook." My protestations that this was because it she was looking at the remains of a rash that I'd picked the heck out of were sadly ignored. I do have a GI appointment coming up in a few weeks though.
    • I'd love to visit! I'm half Irish and half English and would so adore to see Ireland. I loved England when I visited a million years ago. People were so kind.
    • Whatever you do,  run to the store now and eat donuts and bagels. Because I think when your endoscopy is done and over with you're not going to see them again. There are a lot of really good gluten-free cookies, cupcakes, brownies, etc.  Donuts and bagels... not so much. Hope you feel better soon after you get some answers! 
    • Thank you! Im going to check them out now
