Pain or a ‘pins and needles’ sensation can sometimes be present in the arms, hands, legs, or feet. There are many items that cause these symptoms, including:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a hand and arm condition that causes numbness, tingling and other symptoms. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by a pinched nerve in your wrist.

- Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS)
- Electromyogram (EMG) & Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)
Peripheral Nerve Damage
A herniated or inflamed disc in the disc can irritate or compress a nerve that travels into the arm or leg, and thereby produce symptoms of pain, numbness, or tingling. The symptoms can sometimes go from one extremity to another. Although this may cause alarm, there are many non-surgical treatment options available.
