Pins and needles
HI. I have vitiligo... diabetes and hypothyroidism. or the past three months i've had pins and needles in my left hand.. my little finger and the one next to it. It does not affect the other fingers. Does anyone know if this is a known complication of any of the disorders i have?

It can be a symptom of both diabetes and hypothyroidism.

BTW, B12 is great for the neuropathies that are the cause of the tingling in both of these.  It helps to repair the nerve damage.  That's what my endo had me take.

All of your issues are autoimmune disorders, so yes,  they can be related.

Hm.......didn't realize that B12 is helpful to 'pins and needles' can be neuro. related....I have them since the I was diagnosed with ME/CFS 14 yrs ago.    No sure if it is a symptom of hypothyroidism and vitilgo though, (I have both), since I've only been diagnosed with them this year.

Have  a good Memorial Day weekend.
