In brief: Don't worry

Gillian-barre syndrome causes weakness, not pins and needles.
Intermittent pins and needles can occur from abnormal breathing (from anxiety) and overuse from your work and play. Sometimes a professional massage can get you to know your body better. You followed the current recommendation for flu prevention. Be well.
