Tingling, prickling, numbness or burning sensations
Abnormal nerve sensations such as pins-and-needles,
tingling, burning, prickling or similar feelings are
all known as "paresthesias".
They usually result from nerve damage due to pressure (such as a pinched nerve),
entrapment, or diseases.
Continued nerve damage can lead to numbness.
Paresthesias can affect various parts of the body.
Hands, fingers, and feet are common sites but all are possibilities.
Afflictions of specific nerves or
spinal nerves can also cause paresthesias in
particular skin areas of the body.
