I've had this only two or three times in the two plus years since diagnosis. Right now I am controlled by diet and exercise pretty well, the last time was the other day on the treadmill in the middle of fast walking! This seems so strange to me. I never ever have real high BS (since diagnosis) because I watch what I eat and I exercise regularly, and almost every time I test it is within range, so it just doesn't make sense. Wondering if anyone else has had it.

Hi Tabby
I know what you are going through you might want to have it check it may not be nothing or you may start getting norapapthay it is a never that start I belive in the lower part of the spine and gos to the hip if I"m not mastaking I've had it for a few years and it can be painful just get it check to be safe. But be careful I pray that it's not but if it is stay away from Lyrice because that is one of the meds that help put 75pc on my body. Take care Penny

I have the tingling and numb feelings all the time. Used to have sore feet for a while then had the stabbing needle stick pains for several months. Didn’t have a problem until my blood sugar dropped to normal numbers. I read somewhere that high blood sugar will do lots of damage and you don’t even feel it at first. I believe someday it might go away. At least that’s what I’m hoping.

I found one day that my blood sugar was spiking a lot higher than I thought. So I now test the peaks after eating. If your only testing before and 2 hours after eating it may be going higher than you think. By testing 15-20 times a day for a couple of weeks I found that I peak about 1 - 1¼ hours after breakfast, 25 minutes after lunch and 45-60 minutes after supper. I used to think it was about 1 hour after each meal but found out I was wrong. I found my blood sugar could go from 90 to 180 and back to 80 in less than an hour.

I have it a lot. But it seems worse if I exercise in tennis shoes so I have resorted to exercising in slippers - the ballet slipper type - but I had to add scuff pads on the bottoms for better security (the kind of scuff pads you put on the bottom of a pair of slick high-heel shoes).

But then again, I have a lot of tingling in my hands and arms and that is probably related to disc issues in my neck. I have had to have disc surgery twice now. And, since so many of the lower nerves pass through that area I generally attribute the tingling to the issues with the discs.

It happened to me the other day. And of course I started to internally freak out and think I was doing something wrong or that I was finally going to start seeing long term affects from this disease (I haven't quite reached my 2 year mark yet..)

Come to find out; my shoelace were just too tight! They came untied while I was running and when I tied them again the tingling went away and hasn't come back sense.

If I remember correctly my Neuro started out as sharp electric type shocks or quick needle jabs in my feet & legs. These didn't occur when exercising, but could apper at any time.
