Tingling,pricking all over my body

For the last week i have had this tingling, pricking feel all over my body(stomach,legs,arms,face,etc, not on my back). Does not seem to be caused by heat or cold it just comes and go.It does seem to be more noticeable in my inner thighs and stomach(maybe from the rubbing of cloths)?Seems to be not as much when laying down.Can just one or two pinched nerves cause this? thanks

Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am really glad to help you out. It can be due to parastehsia. Parasthesias are common in alcoholics and metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidismThey can also be due to peripheral vascular disease, vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition.

Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated. You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the tingling is gone or not.

In case the symptoms persist then please consult a neurologist as it can be due to some neurological disorder.

I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
