I used to get tingly arms but it was more like my skin was burning/tingling it used to get bad after I'd had a bath or a shower. This will be my third winter flare up free if I make it through without one since I started Amitriptylene so I haven't had it for a while, I do get numbness in my legs though especially if I have been sitting still for any length of time. I never got the same Fibro pain in my arms that I got in my legs, my arms it was always burning or itching skin rather than aches and muscle cramps.

I've had it in my arms and legs at different times. Freaked me out but didnt last more than a day I don't think. I get ions and needles in my feet & hands a lot though.

Yes, I get it in my feet, hands and arms. It's like constant pains and needles in my hands. It's especially bad in my left arm and hand when I first wake up.

Yes both, and bad pins and needles in my legs/feet/arms. Sometimes it feels like tiny red hot pokers, or a crawling sensation. It's not the meds as I've had it through all of them, and I never had it before, so it's the fibro. For some reason it happens at night in bed most often.

I wake a number of times during the night die to numbness in my arms, i usually hve to hang them over the edge of the bed to get the blood flowing again.

Tis very muchly a nuisance and yet another reason for me to wake during the night

Pins n needles in my arms feet legs . Burning sensation as well, it feels like sunburn and radiates under the skin.. Redness on the arms where the burning is. Horrible feeling to be honest and as for the itching , I just wanna scream om times.
