Hello, I’m very new to this so I don’t know how to handle anything. I recently developed chronic tingling (it never stops and is very frustrating) in my feet and I just want to know if this is normal? Will this stop if I get my BG in control? Or does it (the stopping) happen gradually? Or will it get worse before it gets better? 1. I never knew i’m supposed to test my BGs because my endo never told me. If I didn’t start reading from forums, it would never have occured to me. I still need to buy a meter. 2. On Metformin 1000mg but i’m on diet and exercise. 3. Obese but what I have is simple diabetes. I have no high blood pressure or kidney or liver issues as per my latest medical. (And all other medicals before this) 4. I started out with PCOS before diagnosed as Diabetic. But my glucose is usually lower than 6. The only time I remember it being 6.4 is when I was hospitalized for stomach issues. (This is fbs and A1C only) latest is 5.8 (105) 5. My tingling started the same week as my PMS but I never got my menstruation and PMSynptoms are still ongoing but already went to my OB and she said there’s no relation. 6. Also had tooth extractions because of inflammation but dentist said not related. 7. Hema says not anemic and negative ANA. Still waiting for B12 and Folate readings but she said it’s very unlikely. Taking supplements for iron and B complex. 8. Neuro said neuropathy, gave me epileptic medicines and sent me on my way. Okay so my issue is, I feel like I have good control of my diabetes as evidenced by my recent bloodwork, lipid profile, chemistry, etc. The most worrying is my HDL which is below the normal range but my LDL is within normal. Even my doctor said i’m doing well. I Muay Thai/strength train 3x a week, walk for at least 30 mins a day and on a low carb diet. And lost 3 kilos last month and ongoing. But the tingling started anyway and so far it has been 3 weeks. I also had PMS for 3 weeks so is that related? Is my sugar higher? Should I take higher dosage of Metformin? I only know it’s diabetic related because my doctor said so and because it comes with blurry vision. I just need reassurance that this is going to go away and I won’t be this way forever. I’m really doing my best to change but i’m bogged down by anxiety and lack of support system and it’s just making me depressed when I know that I should focus more on healing. I can’t depend on my doctors because they don’t seem to care so much. Can someone give me a timeline of how long does it take to cure this? Say I get my blood sugar in control, does it go away the next day or will it take me months of good control for the tingling to stop? Will it likely progress into something worse even though i’m already making an effort to better control? Will weight loss help it considering that i’m already losing weight but it’s still happening anyway? The reason i’m asking for a timeline is for curb my frustration, if I at least know what to expect, I won’t fall off the bandwagon even if nothing changes as the days progress even though I did everything accordingly. Thank You! Sorry this took so long.
