A few months back I got a sharp shooting pain in my head and was under a lot of stress, soon after I started to get pin pricking sensations all over my body. I had this pin pricking for about a week but it went away so I didnt bother to get it checked out. But a few days ago I was watching tv and got a sharp pain in head and have been having very mild shooting pains in my head. Ive got slight tension in my neck but I'm not stressed at all and I have had some very mild pin pricking too. could this be a trapped nerve or are these symptoms of something more worrying. If it carrys on I will go to the doctors.

If your muscles are tight that will put pressure on your nerves which can result in what you feel.

A gentle massage may be in order.
