Avatar f tn Mainly in his arm and his foot. I do not know if I am at the right forum, but I have always heard that burning and numbness in hands and feet is a sign of diabetes!!!!??? Anyone ever experience these sensations before? If it is serious we will go to the doc but it is hard because we have no insurance and cannot afford it. Should we go anyway?
Avatar m tn also he said yesterday that I had neuropathy in my feet but my circulation was good. advised daily/weekly foot check myself. I also have prolific retinopathy .Is my diabetes getting worse or am I worrying unnecessary.
Avatar m tn Diabetes - eye care Foot Exams Your doctor should check the pulses in your feet and your reflexes at least once a year. The doctor should also look for calluses, infections, and sores. If you have had foot ulcers before, you should see your doctor every 3 to 6 months. See also: Diabetes - taking care of your feet Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) An HbA1C lab test shows the average amount of sugar in your blood over 3 months. It shows how well you are controlling your diabetes.

Avatar f tn Before that go for Diabetes testing, Check your blood pressure and vitals and start getting into shape by having a proper diet. (Not dieting but eating balanced and healthy diet) Take care!

Avatar m tn poor fitting shoes, sprains, fractures, muscle strains, and so on. However, if you have uncontrolled and unmanaged diabetes and are also experiencing a tingling or burning sensation in your foot/feet, the cause could be from Peripheral Neuropathy, damage to a nerve or group of nerves. If left untreated it may lead to amputation. Go see your doctor for an examination. If necessary you may be referred to a Podiatrist and/or Neurologist for further evaluation.
Avatar m tn The swelling got very bad one night and turned hot and pink, and since I have had experience like this before with my parents, and she is a nurse, we noticed the cellulitis right away and went to an ER. the took x-rays of her foot and diagnosed an avulsion fracture and cellulitis and put her on Cefalex and rest for one week.
Avatar f tn My right foot is red and swollen and feels like needles and its been this way for a few hours , what do I do?
Avatar f tn At the hospital we went to, scientists gave a little symposium about this big project and other facets of it, and about the state of diabetes research in general. I found this, and participation in the study, to be useful, in part because it put us in touch with some people doing cutting-edge work, it put us on their mailing lists, it put us on the list of people they'll contact for future studies, etc. It's a foot in the door.
Avatar f tn Are you diabetic, because if you are, you could have broken it and because of loss of sensitivity to the feet with diabetes, it would go undetected and not hurt. If not diabetic, Is your foot reddened also? Could be a possible infection. Have you checked your pedal pulses, (pulses in your feet) because maybe you are not getting sufficient blood to your foot or have a clot. Either way, I wish you the best and please seek medical attention.
Avatar f tn The only thing that scared me was when he was born and he had to go to nicu to have his foot pricked every couple of hrs to check his sugars were fine. Which they regulated beautifully. Dont be scared as long as its been taken care of baby should be fine.
Avatar n tn I've have Type II Diabetes for about 15 months now. I've lost over 100 lbs. -- and still losing. Current weight is 200lbs. My blood sugar averages 95-120, my Metformin has been decreased. I eat 45 carbs per meal. I'm doing well & feeling better than ever. I "walk" 3 miles every day using an In-Home Walking tape. Lately when I do this low impact aerobics, I get a tingling or numb sensation in my left foot. I loosened my shoe, but it continued. Do I have the beginning of neuropothy?
Avatar n tn Anyone living with a chronic disease such as diabetes, can be prone to anxiety, depression and mood swings. You ask if it's normal, and I would think that we all deal with one or more of these at some time in our lives. It's how we deal with it that's important. If your daughter has good blood glucose control and manages her diabetes well, she may not have as much of a problem handling such distresses.
Avatar f tn so do me a favor u r probably 64 by now act your age, deal w the problem, stop making up more illneses and stop looking to have more things wrong with you, u r looking for pitty and people that look forpitty are sickening. I have suffered of fibro for yrs and diabetes and other med conditions u dont see me trying to find more things wrong and arguing a point everytime someone gives me a solution, i just suck it up and deal w it.
Avatar n tn If you are in the sates go to lymenet.com or if you are in canada go to canlyme.com. Check them out and see if you fit the profiles of Lyme. There are also some very helpfull people that can help you find a proper doctor.
1091845 tn?1263165600 nice to hear from you again, many of us here have similar pain caused by neuropathy, usually its caused by diabetes but as I 've said I do not have diabetes and neither do you. I've been told mine is more than likely due to the nerve impingement in my lower back...this can cause alot of pain in the lower limbs and also neuropathy....my one leg is much worse than the other and on this side I too have pain down into my foot...the foot will burn but not the leg/legs....
1028452 tn?1537452084 Dear sir/mam My case : 25 years of gout 2 years foot tingling and burrning sensation worse at nights in both feet 59 years old 92 Kg and 180 Cm tall normal testostrom, V-B12 and FBS but GTT at 6.3 the latest diagnose by my Dr was Pre-Diabetic Peripheral neuropathy I am taking Gabatine 300mg 2 times a day and mutiV therapeutic one cap a day After 3 weeks under that medication I am a little better but I still can,t sleep many nights. Could Microvascular thrapy help ?
Avatar f tn The EMG/nerve conduction studies (NCS) (tests done to check for neuropathy) will not show an abnormality, and a definitive diagnosis can only be made with a skin biopsy so that the number of nerve endings can literally be counted. There are other tests of the function of small nerves that can be ordered, such as QSART testing which looks at how much sweat the skin makes, since sweating is in a sense of function of these small nerves.
Avatar n tn When you visit the endocronologist discuss your fears and concerns--write them down to remember-keep a journal or something like that, so when you visit the doctor you don't forget. The endocronologist should check your feet at your visit as well and will let you know if they see something and have any concerns.
146866 tn?1199599344 What can I do to avoid getting it. Also, my wife's family also has a history of diabetes and what should I be doing for my children so that they can lower their risk of getting it?
Avatar n tn A1C= 2.
Avatar n tn The risk factors for acquired flexible flatfoot secondary to PTT synovitis or rupture are Hypertension, diabetes, and a history of trauma. There are lots of other conditions which can lead to flat foot. Other conditions that can lead to flatfoot are: Tight Achilles tendon, Neurologic diseases (e.g., poliomyelitis, spina bifida, myelodysplasia, NF, stroke), Osteoarthritis, posttraumatic arthritis, or inflammatory arthritis.
1294547 tn?1275659377 It seems like it stops at a less than a 90 degree angle, and will not bend upward or downward fully. It only effects my left foot/leg and because of my ankle and foot reacting this way, I walk with a limp. Depending on my fatigue level, and how much I've use the leg, my leg/foot issue will be worse in the evening, however, I wake up with this numbness on a daily bases. Because of the weakness in my toes, I can no longer get up on my tippy toes on that leg, and I can not walk on my heels.
Avatar n tn http://www.diabetes.org/pre-diabetes/pre-diabetes-symptoms.jsp and I do encourage you to eitehr follow up with your doctor, or to ask for a referral to an endocrinologist -- who specializes in the diagnosis & treatment of conditions like diabetes.
Avatar n tn I also have numb spots in my hip or thigh (moves around). Sometimes I can't feel the floor under my foot and don't know where my right foot is. This does not happen all the time. I am about to begin a vitamin B12 regimen as suggested to me on a forum I go to. You might want to check it out and see if this sounds like you. They can direct you to all kinds of books on this B12 deficiency. http://neuro-mancer.mgh.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/forumdisplay.cgi?
4105307 tn?1369535032 She's going through another stage where her appetite is enormous and she cries and begs to be fed. It's heartbreaking. (You may want to check out the second site...it is no longer available ) I love your personal quote! (Every Storm runs out of rain like every dark night turns into day...Gary Allan) Thanks for caring.
Avatar n tn It would be under my right foot, always in the same area, then in a different area for a while, and now sometimes in my ankle too. It's not getting worse, it just comes and goes on a regular basis. I had a slipped disc in the past, so sciatica may be a possibility, although this feels very different (does not seem to be related to time of day, or position of my back, and not pain involved).
Avatar n tn My dad has diabetes(he was diagnosed a year ago) and I have been through so much with this that just lately I have been wondering if there could be a link with my leg and diabetes? I still feel my leg, and its frustrating becuase I am trying to make it on the elite level. I was a three time all american in college and the softer surface in cross country seem to help.
