Pins and needles after 8 years of CFS.

Edited , 2 users are following.

Has anyone experienced pins and needles (or more accurately 'prickling' sensations) in their arms and legs but sometimes anywhere in the body?

Was diagnosed with CFS 8 years ago but have never had this symptom before.

Really worried about MS. Was not offered an MRI scan during diagnoses.

I must add I've had a lot of stress during lockdown, so maybe that hasn't helped?

    Don't worry about MS. Anxiety can cause prickling sensations in the skin - do a google on it.
