    Re: sensation

    In the US, we also say "Oh, [my foot]'s fallen asleep."

    (But we do say "pins and needes" too.)

    isn't it needles and pins? I've heard a song by Smokie, "Needles and pins"...

    Yes, I searched the dictionary and there's no entry for "Needles and Pins" but only "Pins and Needles".
