It could be due to anxiety....or your oxygen level is low...

The medical term for what you describe is "Paresthesia."  

It is considered a neurological problem. You don't mention your age, but sometimes it can be caused by hormone imbalances.  It can also be a side effect of some medications, street drugs, and even some supplements.

You might do some research on it based on anything you are taking.  If you're not taking anything, you might ask your doctor to check your thyroid and hormone levels.  A low-normal or high-normal result can be significant.
