Pins and needles during exercise?

Posted by martinsmckinney @martinsmckinney, Wed, Nov 20 5:55pm

Does anyone here experience sensations pins and needles when initial sweating occurs during exercise?

That is an interesting observation, @martinsmckinney, that you get a pins and needles feeling when you initially sweat during exercise.

Wondering if @hotfooted @pfbacon @jimhd @artscaping @jenniferhunter have any experiences with this sensation when exercising?

Do you think that sweat is triggering some kind of response, or the movement, martinsmckinney?

I have pins and needles all the time and don't sweat much, not to mention the burning pain in my feet and ankles. I don't exercise formally, but the work around the house and grounds provide productive exercise.

Sorry. Not much help.

I have read that a lack of sweating is a sign of SFN, I have noticed that seems to be my experience.

Yes, because small fibers control so many areas throughout the body. In my case, I sweat too much but it's in and out. I have trouble regulating my body temp which began with a B12 deficiency, hence SFPN.

Thank you all for your responses. I am a cyclist and usually when i ride after about 10 minutes the pins and needles start and they usually last for a good 10-20 minutes. The feeling subsides after that period but during time it is almost enough discomfort to discourage any activity. The same thing happens when I start to sweat in the gym or doing yard work here in Florida. I know it will not feel good. i know it sounds strange but would think most of you are familiar with uncommon symptoms. Just curious if others have the same sensations and what a remedy might be(?).

@martinsmckinney I am so glad you mentioned this. I don’t notice if I have started sweating but I get pins and needles many times after a few minutes of exercise. It gets discouraging and I usually slow down until they go away. I think it’s something we just need to put up with

Thank you @albiet Would like to determine how to avoid this. It may be that more frequent exercise makes it less intense. I would welcome that. Will keep you posted.
