Arm symptoms - nerve: The pins and needles are most likely due to a pinched or inflamed nerve from the cervical spine which radiates down the arms it's important to differentiate whether the etiology is cervical or peripheral such as the carpal tunnel region. The weakness and back pain are possibly muscular issues which need to be evaluated and addressed.
