Pins and needles....

I started taking E about 6 months ago, and I love it, for obvious reasons to anyone else whos done it. Since i started I've also taken various other things, but E forms the basis of my nights out.
But then 3 weeks ago i went out, did some pills and also some speed, and i went crazy on the dancefloor... going like a nutta for a long time. Then when i sat down i got pins and needles all over my body... it didn't feel bad, and inside i was still feeling like you should. But then my hands cramped up so i could hardly move them. This lasted for about 10 minutes.

Then 2 weeks ago i went to a house party and just took one pill. My entire body cramped up completely, to the stage where I couldn't even move my toungue properly to speak. Again this lasted for about 10 minutes.

So last week I went clubbing, took it easy as i was coming up, because thats when it happened 2 weeks ago. I started to get pins and needles in my hands again, but under the advice from a friend i got up and danced, and they went away.

Anyway... the point of all this is: I want to know why its happening. It worries me, as there have been suggestions flying round that it might be something like low blood pressure. Personally, I hope its just exhaustion, and it will go if i rest for a bit.
Does anyone have any idea of what it might be, and what I can do to stop it? And has anyone had a similar experience?

    maybe ure body can't handle E's...or u have had bad pills.

    ive only got that tinckeling (or wotever) feeling once...when i had not much sleep the days before so went to the club very tired, had a few drinks there includung champagne and some cocktails and had been taking 7 pills on 2 hours.
    I felt very good all night but when the pills started "working out" a few hours later...i had such a feeling like my hands and legs didn't get enought blood...felt like my skin was tranqillized aswell. went home and slept pretty quickly... <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Sounds familiar....
    It could be that my body can't handle them, but I've done them so many times before, often doing a lot more in a night. Maybe its all starting to catch up with me....
    And I know they ain't bad pills... other than the wierd crampy thing, they feel great, and my friends were doing the same ones.

    After getting our exam results last thursday me and my mates had a banging nite combining xtc with base. however the aftermath saw one of my friends end up in bath RUH. we can all handle our pills but it was just the base that finished us off. as for the pins and needles, my friend said he experienced that aswell as blacking out twice and smashing his head on the concreate floor. Thats the first and last time we do base. I would seriously advise anyone tempted by base to stay well away because i have spent the last 12 hours shitting bricks hoping my mate is ok.

    I have had pins and needles loads on stuff I wouldn't worry to much about that, I have also had cramp but only when I have not drank enough fluids.

    My guess is that its the base giving u the pins and needles and cramps etc. Its not down to low blood pressure though as u r more likely to get high blood pressure when u r taking drugs!

    Its possible its your circulation due to the base. Unfortuantly Ive been a heavy base user in the past (and am not much better nowdays <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif">) and one of the things that it really effects is my circulation. I have problems with this without drugs so its not helping me by doing base like I do!

    I often get pins and needles and cramps, usually in my hands and legs, but Ive never experienced it all over like u described. Another things I find I get is cold hands and feet and also blotchy, clammy skin if Ive really cained it and am running around (this is the blood pumping around quicker coz your heart is doing overtime...high blood pressure!).

    All in all base is not ideal and Im pretty sure this is why u r getting what u have described. However Ive never had anything as bad as not being able to move anything at all...this is worrying and if it were me Id definatly start considering not doing them anymore...which I am thinking bout anyway as it happens <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt; Hope this is some help anyway!

    me and my mates were celebrating our results last thursday. it was one of my mates first time on speed (she'd done e before) we were all chilling out laying on the ground just watching the stars and she got a pins and needle feeling which lasted for a while. we just thought that it was because she was on a comedown....maybe not!

    Thakyou all for the advice. The cold hands and feet, sweating and blotchy skin are all regualars on the day after, because I have a ahbit of going a little over the top.

    Anyway, the good news is that I went out last night to a 30 hour outdoor rave (which got shut down early by the police) and I took a variety of things, including speed and E, and I felt no bad feelings at all. In fact, it was an incredible night.
