Get Rid Of Pins And Needles In Your Hands By Moving Your Head

That tingling feeling when your hand or foot falls asleep (a condition known as paresthesia) sure is aggravating. You can wake your hand up in under a minute, however, just by rocking your head side to side.Photo by Namida-k.

Both Men’s Health and Wikipedia give this reason why rocking your head will get rid of those pins and needles:

A tingly hand or arm is often the result of compression in the bundle of nerves in your neck; loosening your neck muscles releases the pressure.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t work for your feet, so you’ll need to get up and walk around to fix paresthesia of the foot.

The Men’s Health article offers other unusual health tricks, like scratching your ear to cure a tickling throat. Who knew?

    Do what women do, sit down and all is well. You will no longer have to wipe walls, seats and eyebrows.

    • I have actually tried to pee in this condition, and I can honestly say it was damn near impossible! You have to force it to an unnatural position and then relax enough to get a flow! Now maybe if you are somewhat smaller than normal…? #}
