    Don't want alarm you, but see a doctor. These may be the early signs of something. Or it may be nothing. Get checked out anyway.

    I experienced this with my feet and calf muscles.

    Before starting insulin I used to regularly get cramps in my feet and my big toe would act weirdly clinging onto rest of the toes and it was hard to separate them. In the middle of the night I would get random stabbing pains in my calf muscles which would wake me up and literally made me scream .

    My theory is:
    -dehydration due to high BG
    -lack of insulin so muscles cannot get energy

    Together they make sense
