Pins and needles in my little finger

Whenever I'm sitting I get pins and needles in my little finger and in my hand and foot. When I stand it goes away.

If you have pins and needles in your little finger and toe when you sit this may indicate pressure on the nerve pathways supplying those areas. As the sensation disappears when you stand this does suggest this is positional.

If the sensation occurs when you are not sitting then this potentially may be related to the nerve conduction or potentially circulation and you will need to follow up with your GP for assessment. Hopefully this will help you.
