Hallo Cindy
You may have a nerve pinching at the wrists ( Carpal tunnel syndrome) and the dizziness can be caused by middle ear infection/inflammation. Please see your GP for an evaluation as there are treatments you can take for the dizziness. The needles and pins can be treated by physiotherapy or surgery.
