I have been getting pins and needles in both hands and feet (not at the same time). I always sleep with head elevated, is this neck related?

In brief: Could be

There are many reasons for pins and needles in hands and feet.
At 37 years old its unlikely to be neck related, but some people can have narrowing of the spinal canal from birth. More likely is neuropathy, where the nerves get sick. Sometimes its a simple nutritional issue. It's worth seeing a doctor.
