You would need an mrv to look for dilated pelvic veins. ...Read more

Need to pin down: Symptoms in arms are not related to a disk in the lower back, although one might experience disk issues in neck also. Best though to wonder about peripheral nerve disorder, spinal stenosis, and even medication reactions. Need a thorough evaluation by a neurologist. ...Read more

I have pins and needles in both feet and lower leg. It is always worse after I have done strenuous work. I get a twinge at the top of my spine too.

Tell your doctor: I assume that this is relatively new? In a 31 year old female who I'll assume is otherwise healthy, this may warrant a full neurologic examination, and you may need an MRI. If you are having any bowel or bladder symptoms, please see a doctor ASAP. Feel free to request a virtual consult, or go see your local doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

Sharp pins and needles pain back of knee and continues down leg. Pins and needles in wrist and hand as well. Happens occassionally, mostly lying down.

Sharp pins and needles pain back of knee and continues down leg. Pins and needles in wrist and hand as well. Happens occassionally, mostly lying down.

Pins and needles: It's unclear if this is occurring with pressure in the back of the knees or the hands and wrist. Pressure over those areas can cause those symptoms. If there is no pressure over those area, then the question is do these symptoms persist or quickly dissipate. If the symptoms persist or continue on a regular basis, then they should be evaluated. ...Read more
