    I used to get similar. Once I got my blood sugars normalised this went away permanently.

    Depends what other health issues you have. I get pins and needles and even loss of feelings in limbs, but then I also have fibromyalgia so put it down to that and not diabetes.

    I had sugars of around 20 mmol/L so the context made this clear. Other variables were brain fog, eyesight issues, blisters.

    Hello @Stephanie 1233, I see you were recently diagnosed? I have always been prone to pins and needles since I was a child, but after being diagnosed I had some really horrible tingling feelings in my arms and legs as my blood sugar levels came down, but it improved within a week or two of maintaining normal blood glucose levels.

    dont know if its due to disbetes, but I get this, gets worse when I give in yo sugar cravings.

    Doctors/Diabetic nurse say isnt due to Diabetes but some kind nerve damage and not to worry ! You have to be dying at my GP before they get concerned!
