    Morning everyone,
    Some thoughts on this if you can. I've had tingling in feet which goes up my calves and stops at the knee and tingling hands which don't quite reach the elbow. Yesterday, one finger went completely numb and freezing cold. I took them both to the doctor, he got tests done for vit B12 and follic acid and my thyroid. All normal well except I take thyroxine. He doubled the dose of potassium.
    So now what?
    Any ideas welcomed with tingly fingers

    do you have a consultant. obviously you need to get diabetic nerve/blood vessel damage discounted. iv 2 numb fingers on my right hand just wear and tear says my doctor.

    It could be diabetic neuropathy. This is something that needs investigating.

    Is this a recent thing or is it something that runs in your family?
    I regularly get very cold numb white fingers. This is due to Raynauds which my mother and her mother have but never had diabetes: it is unrelated.
