Pins and needles in legs

There are dozens of different types, severity, and causes of neuropathy and weakness; some of them virtually meaningless and some that can be serious. When we're first diagnosed, most of us tend to be a bit more nervous and thus prone to anxiety, which can causes dozens of interesting (but harmless) symptoms. So that makes it even tougher to sort out "the wheat from the chaff" in the beginning.
Therefore, lots of us could be able to relate to these symptoms, but that would not necessarily mean anything at all in terms of whether it was due to scleroderma or other things. So it is something to note and, if it continues or worsens, to mention to your doctor at your next visit.
Here's hoping you feel a little better, soon!

You subject matter caught my eye. I don't know if this is scleroderma related, but I have sensations in my legs that are like pins and needles, and also like something crawling under my skin. The sensations come on more when I am anxious, or warmish, and beginning to sweat. In the legs it begins in the feet, and comes up just above the calves.....and continues that cycle over and over again. And in the arms, it begins in the hands and comes up to the elbows, in a continuing cycle.
Hope you get some answers from your doctor. So far mine just look at me when I share the information. LOL
