Acroparesthesia

Last revised by Dr James Harvey on 18 Jan 2021

Acroparesthesia refers to tingling, pins-and-needles, burning or numbness or stiffness in the hands and feet, particularly the fingers and toes 1. Occasionally episodic pain is also present, which can be very severe 1

It is one of the more common manifestations of Fabry disease (more common than the better known ischemic events) 1, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other peripheral nerve lesions.
