I am adding this because I have noticed I have been getting random pains, like in my hand it will feel like someone has poked my bone with a needle.. It effects my whole body, from my feet to the crown of my head… Has anyone else noticed this?? I am talking to my doctor next visit

That was how my diabetic neuropathy started, Raven. I can't definitely diagnose that, that's for your Dr to determine, but it sounds suspiciously like the beginnings of Diabetic Neuropathy (DN). I'm told that with tight BG control, the progresion of DN can be halted. There are also suppliments like Alpha Lipolic acid I am currently taking and the pain level I had (about a "6" on the pain chart) has seemed to back off a bit. I am hopeful that with tighter control, and the use of ALA I might stop the pain.

I pray you can stop the progression before it gets too bad.
