I need to read up on this.

I am type 2 and i worry about the tingling in my left hand. Last night it was bad. How do i know if it isn't just the position i am in causing it? I also worry about the pain in my right heal. Have had this for a while now but i am just starting to notice it more now.

I will see my doctor about this of course.

In the meantime, do you deal with Neuropathy and how did you notice it? Do you take any kind of meds or treatment for this?

Thank you, Denise

Hi Denise!
I actually have stumbled across something that could really help. My grandpa suffers from diabetes and has for a long time, so this disease really hits close to me, and I decided I wanted to try and help as many people as possible, who are like my sweet grandpa. I was really excited to find out about this product and have personally seen it work for a lot of people with diabetes who suffer from tingling and numbness in their limbs. Its an all-natural (even better, no drugs woo-hoo!) patch that you apply to whatever part of your body is affected, in your case, your hand. If you would like, I could send you a patch to try out. I would really like to help you out, and I believe this patch could do just that. Let me know! :)

For me I do have nerve damage in my feet and in my arms because of the diabetes. The way I found out was the doc did a shock test on my arms and feet which really didn't feel good when he done it but it ain't to bad of a test. For me I just deal with it I'm already on a lot of meds and with my depression I do good taking the meds I have now. But plz do talk to your doc about what's going on. I wish you the best and keep us posted on what you find out. I'm here if you need to talk. :)

The tingling in your hand may be from carpal tunnel syndrome or low calcium I have experienced both and it turned out that I had carpal tunnel, so unfortunately, i needed surgery to correct it. The surgeon also found by reviewing the Xrays that I had severe arthritis in my left hand. My surgery consisted of reconstructing my thumb by rerouting one of the tendons in my left forearm reconstructing the bottom joint of my hand, right above my wrist, and fusing the end joint of my thumb. The surgery was sucessful and I now have hand therapy to do everyday. Alot of work, but well worth it! I suggest talking to your doctor and go from there. I wish you good luck in finding treatment!
