    cud b carpel tunnel.....in ref with your hands !! the nerve this runs into your wrist gets caught or trapped and as a result you get pins and needles regularly, if this is the case u wud need surgey to release the pressue on the nerve, i do however doubt this will be the reason as your very young to have the problem.

    Because carpal tunnel would effect your feet... :rolleyes:

    Sounds like it could be Raynaud's or similar, but this is all just speculation. If it's worrying you that much, or affecting your daily life, make an appointment with your GP and get it checked out.

    It's probably just random then! 5% of the 'healthy' population have raynauld's in some form. Although the fact you get pins and needles in the bath is odd, as the warmth usually cases your blood vessles to dilate (get wider), and the pins and needles of raynaulds are usually associated with your blood vessles constricting (getting smaller), and reducing the oxygen getting to your muscles - hense the pins and needles

    My family has very bad circulation in the hands and feet. When I get hot or cold, my hands and feet start to get pins and needles. I've always assumed that it has something to do with blood flow, and have never worried.

    However, if there's no history of this in your family, or its freaking you out too much, I'd go and ask a doctor about it.

    Hmm, I get the same. Perhaps not so much in my hands. It doesn't bother me that much, I just worry that it might be connected to something a bit more significant.

    I have raynaud's and sometimes I get the feeling of pins and needles in my hands and legs - not usually my feet - it can really hurt!! I don't have to be particularly cold or hot to get the pins and needles - it's a bit random like that!

    Yeah, it sounds like Raynauds, which basically is bad circulation. I have it mildly and especially when it's very cold, my hands turn a peachy, dead, purpley colour. It's horrible, and if you were to press my hand, nose, or feet etc, a white mark would stay there forever. It's not nice, and my hands go all weird and blotchy.

    However, the tingling sensation is probably just due to the temperature change, wouldn't worry about it. Have you never gone for a winter day walk, and got into the warm house, and got a tingling sensation in the end of your nose? Or when your hands are really cold at Christmas, so you run them under hot water, and they go all tingly too? It's just temperature change.

    But here's a Raynauds link, just in case. Picture.

    I have mild renaurds, and a family history but only in my hands so far. Often its change of temperature so if you hold a cold glass on a hot day that can set it off

    I have Raynauds quite badly, as does my mum (is it genetic? think it is) I also get blue feet if i spend too much time standing up (eg in the shower) or walking. Its really irritating and toes or fingers go numb for ages.

    Think the bath is due to change in temp also, prob cos your feet are cold and you get into hot water.
