Lately my blood sugars have been out of control. I have not been taking care of myself by not bolusing or checking my blood sugar. Lately, I have been having tingles up my spine. The start in the small of my back, work up my spine, hit the back of the head and cause me to be dizzy for a couple seconds. Has anyone experienced this before? Just wondering if it is BG related.

A related question: sometimes when I have had my hands in water for a long time, like washing dishes, my hands maybe 'tingle' when they brush against something. It is not the hands-asleep-and-waking-up tingle. It is almost an electric brush feeling. It goes away when I put lotion on.

A WAG (wild arse guess) Mags: could it be chapped siin on hands brushing against something which sets it off? Dishwashing can cause chapped skin. (that is why I religiously avoid it! LoL!)

Did the tingles always happen or after you stopped taking care of yourself?

After…and when I started monitoring my blood sugar more a couple days ago, they seemed to go away. I think it scared me enough to realize that I need to be better. Now I am just worried if I did any perm damage. Endo appointment on the 26th. I plan on confessing, mentioning this issue and asking for help.

Yes, good idea. I tell my endo everything, bad and the good. You answered you're own question, and better sooner or later, at least you're going to do something, and learn from it. Take care!

Generally tingles around the mouth can mean a low. Tingles in the feet and fingers can mean nerve damage. Tingles in limbs can be a progression of the complications. I have not heard of the tingles starting in the back first. I would say I would talk to the doctor and ask a lot of questions about what could be going on.

It may be but there are other things it can be too call your Doc and tell them what's going on .
The other thing it can be can kill you or leave you stuck in a bead for life
Best wishes
