Pins And Needles Everywhere?

Postby Dontae » Sun Oct 01, 2017 8:02 am

Hi All,

Last week I went to see my doctor because of a possible pinched nerve in my neck that was giving me shoulder and upper arm pain when my arm was moved away from my body. My doctor had x-rays done, and has since called me back. Here in Canada, no news is good news after a doctor appointment, so i am not concerned, as to my wife informed me that he left a message on our answering machine, saying he wants to see me. I am away in Europe on business and am contemplating going home sooner so, because of this phone message. No sense trying to call my doctor, they will not give results over the phone even if it was good news.
Since my last doctor appointment last week, i have developed new symptoms: pins and needle like sensation all over my body. The ?prickles? are quick (les then a second), not like the prolonged sensation of a foot that has fallen asleep and my spin is tender in the middle of my back. They are everywhere, and all the time except when I am laying down. Funny enough, my shoulder and arm feel great, no symptoms there at all since the pins and needles started. Although I do get a sour upper back from sitting.

Obviously my main concern is that I have a lung cancer and these are the first signs. I use to smoke, quit 3 years ago. Have had no sporting injuries that I can think of and other then what I described above, I feal great and am very active. 32 year old male with no history of health problems

Can any one shed some light on what the most likely scenario is with regards to the symptoms that I explained above?

It is unusual to get tingling sensations all over your WHOLE body at once, but since you mentioned lungs I would assume that it is concentrated in your upper chest area.

That being said, in combination with your back pain, you might look into Thoracic Spinal Stenosis. Here is a link with detailed information on this issue (link below)
