Pins and needles

Hello All.

Just wondered if anybody on here gets pins and needles or buzzing feet and hands?? I have had this 24/7 for 8 months now and I'm so fed up with it. Been to the hospital had blood test and mri's which showed nothing and now come to a holt of what to do next? I tried taking amortripaline for a couple of months which worked maybe 30% but I felt completely knackered all the time so came off and now back to square one. Can anyone tell me if this can be anxiety as in 24/7 for 8 months? don't feel stressed at all and nothing to worry about apart from this of course. Anyway any help or advice would be great.

I have it constantly. I also find myself so tense throughout the day, that my muscles are tensed all day. Then I get the pins and needles, burning feet and also unsteadiness and swaying on my feet. I have yet to find relief and every doctor I've seen says it's all anxiety. Sorry I don't have any advice on how to stop it, just really wanted you to know that you are not alone in this.



It's strange no doctor has said it's anxiety, They just say they don't know? and most of the time they never find out. Have you tried any medication or other therapy's??


I am supposed to begin CBT soon. Hopefully that will help.
