      In defence of Drangd Jenny08965 you haven't given us much to go on, nor have you responded to helpful comments from others.

      I have Diabetes and Pernicious Anaemia - I also suffer pins and needles which are symptoms of both and I don't know which to blame.

      I hope you find the answer to what is causing yours very soon and I wish you well.

    Hi Jenny,

    As you've posedthe question here I presume you have diabetes.

    Diabetes is an autoimmune disorder and too is Vitamin B12 Deficiency.

    One of the symptoms of B12 Deficiency, which affects the nervous system, is pins and needles.

    As Marily92910 suggests have it checked out and ask your doctor to run serum B12 and Folate tests to rule out a deficiency.

    If you've been a diabetic for a while, and especially if you control is poor, yes.  It's a possible sign of neuropathy which is one of the possible long-term effects of poor diabetes control.

    I'd see a doctor at this point anyway.
