I am experiencing numbness in my feet and tingling occasionally in my hands. My glucose is between 80 and 90. I used to be hyphypoglycemic and I wonder if I should have that checked?
Numbness and tingling in your hands and feet can be caused by many reasons, including:
- Diabetes (in which blood sugar is high, not low)
- Nerve damage
- Inflammation or entrapment (such as carpal tunnel)
- Vitamin deficiencies
- Toxins like alcohol
- Even medication side effects
Because the reasons are so broad, it is important to follow up with your doctor who can gain a better history of your symptoms, perform an exam, obtain some blood work and other tests if indicated, and then prescribe treatment and/or referral to a neurologist.
