Pins and needles on back & chest when I get nervous, warm, flush, excited. No rash, I do have allergies and general anxiety disorder. Lasts seconds.
Not uncommon: If you can live with it I would just ignore it. If you feel as if you can't breath, get chest pain or tightening of your throat you may want to do something about this.

I am 19 and got sudden pins and needles in left arm and hand. They go away with a bit of movement or so. I also suffer from anxiety. Any thoughts?
MS fear for 1.5 years. Body wide VISIBLE twitching. Hasn't gotten worse. No numbness or pins and needles. Can use limbs like normal. Anxiety related?
I can't do things like cross arms, legs, comb hair, hold phone, push ups w/out some form of paresthesia. How is that anxiety? Xanax doesn't stop it. I'm not panicking. I have popping in hand, shoulder blade that shoots pins and needles down arm.
Anxiety or medical?: A diagnosis of anxiety as a cause of physical symptoms can only be made when medical causes have been ruled out. Suggest you see your pcp for an evaluation of paresthesias. That said, anxiety can cause numerous physical symptoms even without conscious panicky thoughts because of the body's response to an adrenaline surge via the "fight or flight" reaction. I hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more
