Ok so every morning for the past couple weeks I have been waking up from a low and have been feeling numb in my upper arms and I was wondering if I should be worried or if its normal

She tells me to get my back put back in but it only helps for one time

Never, if you choose not to use the "reply" link beneath the post to which you are replying, at least put the name of the one to whom you are replying. Otherwise it is confusing as to whom you are replying.

If you are struggling with lows that much, you may want to wake up in the night and eat something again. What do you eat for a snack? If it's something long lasting like protein or fat it can help. There are also special foods like Extend bars that are suppose to have a longer lasting lower release of carbs. You may want to look into something like that.

About your arms, that sounds really odd and I would in no way consider it normal. And if your doctor says it might be your back, what is she doing to help you figure that out. I would not let it go. Press the issue.

I have but she says its nothing wrong its probably my back out but it happens every time I'm low I do eat a snack before bed but it never helps

Exactly what do you eat as a snack before bed, how much of it do you eat and how long before bed do you eat it?

what, how much and timing may need to get tweaked for better fasting BG readings.

Perhaps also sit down with this Dr and ask her to take your concerns seriously. Sounds like she is just "blowing off" your symptoms. Maybe because of your youth, her laziness or some other reason? If she does not, maybe it is time to find someone else and fire her (in that order)

God's best to you

Have you called your doctor and asked him or her if this is normal for you? Are you eating a snack before bed? What time is you last meal and the time you go to bed? Are you exercising just before bed?

Numbness needs to be addressed by your doctor and that should be addressed as soon as possible.
