When to see your doctor about pins and needles
For women in perimenopause, paraesthesia is likely to be caused by hormonal imbalance, but it can be an indicator of other more serious issues. If you’re experiencing other symptoms talk to your doctor to work out the likely cause.
And then there’s always HRT…
For those women, whose health history means they’re able to take it, HRT brings hormones back in to balance, relieving hormone-induced tingling and the anxiety that can cause these sensations.
The Hot Flush caveat, there are pros and cons to taking HRT. See our vlog – What Is HRT? and our conversation with our gynaecologist, Dr Karen Morton Talking Menopause. We don’t take a view. It’s for you to decide whether it’s for you or not.
