Pins and needles. Do you get them?

Pins and needles is a common expression for patients

It describes a tingling sensation. Most commonly, people feel pins and needles in their hands and feet, often after the release of pressure in these areas. It’s quite a descriptive expression as it feels like multiple small sharp points are stabbing the area.
