Swedish term or phrase: sockerdrickskänsla
As seen in descriptions available for all to see on Google:
Domning är den störning i hudkänseln som brukar beskrivas som stickningar/pirrningar/**sockerdrickskänsla**. En vanlig orsak är det som i folkmun kallas att kroppsdelar "somnar", dvs att en nerv kommit i kläm med tillfälligt störd funktion. Exempel på detta är änkestöt.

and: Flera allvarliga sjukdomar kan nämligen börja med ”sockerdrickskänsla” i händer eller fötter.

Thanks in advance.
