Does anyone with Type 2 have occasional tingling all over. I check my
sugar at that time and it seems to be normal. Also burning sensation in
your feet and a very itch back
flutetooter responded:
et us know exactly what numbers you call "normal" at the time of the tingling, and how the timing relates to your last meal. Peripheral neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes, but it could be other things also.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
geriborba replied to flutetooter's response:
Actually I never noticed when my last meal was. I is usually between 92 and 102
geriborba replied to flutetooter's response:
I'm back again. Also I take meds for aniety disorder. And taking my low dose of tranquilizer reduces the tingling. I am so
confused. Have mentioned this to my Drs but they don't seem to have a straight answer,
DavidHueben replied to geriborba's response:

Short of pure speculation, I doubt anyone here could give you much of an answer. A symptom such as "tingling" could be associated with many different things.

I think the only real source of answers will have to come from your medical team. They know your complete medical history and medication protocol.

Thanks to all of you for your help.
geriborba replied to flutetooter's response:
Finally found out what is causing this tingling. Lymes Disease.
After tons of tests. I suggested to the Dr to test for Lymes Disease since I had it 10 yrs ago. Last I know of possible tick bite was about 4 yrs ago. A long long time without meds. Who would have thought. I think the Dr owes me a free visit.
Thanks for all your suggestions.
Your quote fits perfectly.

GLAD you (& your Dr) "Finally" found out the REAL case. No doctor reguardless of how many years of schooling and experience, can come close to knowing YOUR body than YOU! Recently Dr Oz (TV wizzard/doc) said somehitng to that effect on his show recently.

I am amazed you remembered a tic bite 4 yrs ago, but then again I don't know if I ahve ever been bitten by one. I had a long time (still) friend who had Lyme disease, he struggled with it for years before he got much better. Good luck!

Wow! I'm glad you found out! And it's great that you are such an advocate for your own health.

Yes, a free visit would be nice!!!!
