    what's the word?

    what's the word for tingly foot/feet (or certain body part) when it wasn't moved for a long time and you get that funny sensation?

    People call it by many words.

    Some call it "Sleeping Feet" while some call it just "tingly feeling."

    The most commonly used word is "Needles and Pins", since it feels like you foot is being pricked by needles or pins when not moved for a long time.

    In AmE, we'd say "my foot has fallen asleep."
