Health Tip: Pins And Needles That Won't Go Away

But when the sensation becomes frequent, it could indicate nerve damage, lack of blood supply to an area, diabetes, hypothyroidism, pressure on the nerves caused by a tumor, a stroke, or migraine, the University of Maryland Medical Center says.

The underlying cause of frequent paresthesias should be treated after a professional consultation.
