Hi Ė Iím 27 female, 120lbs 5í3.
2 weeks ago I was grocery shopping and I started to get pins & needles in both hands. I thought, thatís strange, never had it in both hands before (I hardly ever get pins & needles).
The sensation was felt all day. I noticed it the next day as well, sometimes really bad sometimes minor.
This has been going on for two weeks now, and esp. when I workout. For the last 3 days I have not had it, but I did not workout over the weekend. Monday I had it during workout, and also again white trimming some chicken for dinner. Today it got worse, I had it in both hands while working out, and then I got a sensation of sweat running down my lower legs (shin area), but as I just started my workout there was no sweat present.
Iíve tried changing up my workout clothes, routine, even bought new shoes thinking maybe I was squeezing something that was cutting off my circulation Ė so thatís not it. Also it happens while not working out (just in my hands thus far) so maybe its not related to the workout.
It can be pretty painful, so if I clap my hands together the back hurt, they are very sensitive if I touch the back of them.
I do light weight training and cardio 4-5X per week. I have been doing a similar routine for years Ė my diet is fairly whole / healthy and has not changed that much over the last couple of years.
I donít know what to do; Iím kinda freaked out.
Please help, thank you.
