Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The treatment depends on the area where you have the pins and needles. I am assuming it to be in your legs.
  • If that is the situation, then you should look into nerve issues (sciatica). But, it will also cause lower back pain.
  • I would suggest you to try firm surface which is flat and same for upper and lower torso.
  • If the pins and needles are in the upper body, then your nerves might be compressing at the level of lower neck or axilla. You would benefit from cervical collar.
