Paresthesia (/ˌpærɨsˈθiːziə/ or /ˌpærɨsˈθiːʒə/), spelled paraesthesia in British English, is a sensation of tingling, pricking, or numbness of a person's skin with no apparent long-term physical effect. It is more generally known as the feeling of "pins and needles" or of a limb "falling asleep" (although this is not directly related to the phenomenon of "limb falling asleep"). The manifestation of paresthesia may be transient or chronic.
