Another frequent symptom of spinal stenosis is a tingling sensation in the legs or arms, or throughout the entire body. Most people compare the feeling to pins and needles. This symptom develops due to reduced blood flow, which causes areas to "fall asleep." Stretching the affected body part gently can help alleviate the sensation, though sudden movements can provoke it or make it worse.
