Hey, so for about 2 years everytime i go to a store or somewhere with a lot of people i feel like im getting poked with a pin in my face, head, and shoulders. its not like when your hand goes numb, it just feels like im getting poked with one pin at a time and in different areas. Also, this does NOT happen when im exercising, a lot of people have asked me if it was before.

So yeah its gets really bad and it made me quit my job because it just wouldn't stop. It makes me look like i'm insane because i keep rubbing my head and shoulders when im around people

More info: im very overweight if that matters, and im 19 years old, 6 feed 6 inches tall.

  • [i have simalar problems but all over my body too, i was told by a neurologist that it is a migraine illness, perhaps yours is too? worth seeing a doctor though yourself. i have read a fair bit since on migraine and i did not realise how dibilitating it is until now. hope this helps.

I don;t know if either one applies to you, but in case they do, I will mention them here. (1) Large doses of B vitamins, especially Niacin, has caused pin *****s to me (2) Fiber insulation, whenever I have to work and touch it, causes the same in me.
