Pins and needles


I had a brain haemorrhage 10 years ago and recently am experiencing pins and needles down the left side of my body; face feet arms hips etc I sometimes get them on the right side of my body aswel.

I have been getting headaches and seeing flashing lights in my visual field.

Of course I have been the doctors and seen a neurologist who did an MRI which showed no significant changes, no follow ups booked.

Im wondering does anyone else get these type of sensations as after effects of a BI

Im assuming if there was an issue it would show up on scan results is that right?

Hiya again Pretty things. I've also had brain injuries and suffer with the same. The worse is the continual shaking. I pass out and a couple of months ago had an MRI that found that I'd had a 3rd injury that I didn't know about. Now I see 2 neurologists and on Wednesday go for tests ( EMG and NCS ) for peripheral neuropathy. I worry about what they may find. I don't want a diagnosis of Parkinson's, which is on my mind due to these damn shakes . Some people think it's the beer,but I hardly touch it now. Maybe these tests will give me some idea. Dave x

I worry about MS because of the pins and needles but surely the MRI would have spotted something

Also had blood tests etc and eye teats etc still no answers

Hi Prettythings,

I wonder if you are having migraines ?


I have the sparkly flashes visual aura for about 20 - 30 mins before the headache. Fortunately the headache part is usually mild and short lived. I'm at that 'funny age' in my female life, when it is often more common ! : ) x
