Hello! My mom has been feeling super hot for quite some time now (inside her body, not outside really) and been very dehydrated. Last week she started hurting all over with a pins and needles feeling. Some times it is worse and some times it feels a lot better. She said she felt this a long time ago and it went away. Not sure what it is because it happens when her BS numbers are lower or higher. Not sure what it is and thought someone might have some advice. Thank you! GOD bless<><
The best advice any of us could give you would be to discuss this with your mom's doctor. It is both impossible and against the rules to diagnose or give medical advice over an internet message board. There are a number of conditions that could be causing these symptoms. The only way to get your mom the treatment she needs is to call her doctor.

Thank you for the response! We already had her go see the doctor, but she did not address what my mom asked her about. She has an appt soon with her, but we were just looking to see anyone has had the same thing.
Thank you so much for the information Haylen! We thought about that as well. Do you know if the first form on the list is constant or if the pain goes away and then comes back? That is what happens. Sometimes when stressful situations occur, it gets worse. Thank you! God bless<><
I'm not sure but you and your mom should take detailed notes about the pain such as: time of day, duration, BS numbers, etc. This will help her doctor pinpoint exactly what is going on so she can get a diagnosis.
I saw the other posts. I would ask her doctor what symptoms she should be aware of for lactic acidosis. Diabetic nerve pain is usually isolated. An all over pins and needles could be the beginning of something else. Please ask her doctor and keep her hydrated in the meantime.
