Hello every1!!, first everyone,,, I would like to say I have been very happy to find this forum... I really like reading through everything. Also I should mention I live in California, in the u.s.a. LOL but I hope I will be allowed to participate here,,, because I really do like this forum! So since recently finding out about my h1c and ,,, my blood sugar is a bit High about 4 weeks ago,, but my doctor doesn't have me on any medication right now,,, and is just trying to give me a chance to change up my diet a bit.. I have to say I've made just a few changes here or there and I've had some success over the last month with lowering my blood sugar quite a bit,,,, it might not be at the most perfect ideal numbers,, but it has lowered quite a lot. Which is very good to see..... Most of the day it's fairly normal measurements..... I'm just struggling with the glucose measurement when I first wake up, which I heard is very common for people... ANyway!, that was just a little background lol ....my Main question is, I am very curious why my finger prick hurts a lot more in my ring finger? It hurts much less in my index or my middle finger ,,,and doesn't hurt much at all. I am using the sides of my fingertips and not in the center. But since I know they like to recommend the ring finger also , I was just curious why my ring finger might be giving me a lot more pain than the other two fingers???. When I used the side of my right ring finger a few days ago it almost made me cry ,,,I felt like it hit some kind of nerve or something . But when I use my index or my middle finger it doesn't hurt at all.. really.......ok,, not that big a deal ,, but I was just curious and thought that would be my first question here...... so thank you so very much and nice to meet everybody! And hello from california!!!!
