I'm at the end of my rope. The last couple of weeks I started getting painful pins&needles mostly around my head, neck, shoulders, eyballs, and mouth, with occasional sensations in my legs and groin area--no rash. Today I was the worst. I came home from walking the dog and i was lying on the couch watching Tv and the pins&needles just permeated every pore of my body! After realizing that it isn't arterial or neurological or shingles, as I had considered previously, I started thinking what I could be having a histamine reaction to. it comes down to:
1-Over -consumption of oranges and orange juice lately (althought I dont consider myself allergic to oranges), or
2- Switching the other day from powdered Arm&Hammmer laundry detergent to the blue liquid Arm&Hammer. Again, I used to use both with no reactions. So I'm stuck with having to accept that bodies and tolerances change. I go back to my ENT/Allergist in 10 days to discuss the bloodwork he did a couple of weeks ago. I just took a dye-free Benadryl capsule, hoping it'll settle down. An itch here and there is tolerable, but all-body pins&needles is hell!
