Hi joanie: First of all I'd really stop those ready cooked meals. Their full of sodium and high in carbs, fat and calories. Regardless what the caloric count says they have many hidden calories in them. No good Dr. would suggest them, any one of them. I suggest you try Weight Watchers on line. It's a good diet plan and you can work you diabetic needs into itl. I hsve and am having great success. I'd check with your Dr. before starting any diet. I sincerely doubt the tinggling in your hands and feet is related to the ready cooked meals. Neuropathy came on to me suddenly, and started out as tinggling. Now I have no feeling and the feeling is numbness. I take Cymbalta for the pain and burning. Check with your Dr. though, it's hard to tell in a post. Hugs to you, Valentine Lady

I'll second the "check with your doctor comment". It's odd that you would develop this in both hands and both feet within two weeks of starting ready meals. Combined with the distended tummy and slendar legs, it could also be kidney function or a cardiac/water retention issue I really would give my doc a call on Monday. These symptoms could all relate to the sodium content of the meals.

Sounds like neuropathy to me. Check with you doctor. Watch out on ready made meals some are high in carbs an fat andcalories
