Hi Kikidee, I'm not a doctor but I think it's a good idea to have blood tests to eliminate or pin point certain conditions, diabetes among them and to see the neurologist because of the sensation you have in the feet. It might be a pinched nerve. These kinds of things might even originate elsewhere, like in the back or hips. So, having those tests done and seeing the neurologist, as you plan, will set you on the right track. Some people here in the States might also go to a chiropractor for those symptoms.
If you're not a diabetic, it's more likely that it's a nerve problem from the way you describe it. By all means, though, seeing a neurologist would probably give you the answer. I've never been to a chiropractor but some people have had lots of help from them, too. Good luck. No fun living with pain at anytime but more so during the holidays!
Hi there, my weight is fine, i did lose a bit of weight last year but it was intentional, otherwise my weight is normal!! I do have a craving for chocolate all the time and sweet stuff though and for the amount of sweet stuff i eat my weight would stay around about 10st, which is ok for my 5ft 4" frame. Diabetes does run in my family so just out of curiosity i got my brother to check my blood sugars yesterday evening and the reading was 6.8 which is ok..I also suffer from Bipolar disorder which ive had for a number of years now, my mediacation is keeping it at bay and i seem to be coping well with it too..Im just worried sick about my feet as no-one seems to know what is wrong with them, ive been up most of the night with them (again) as the pains and tingling in them was so painful!! I'd love to see the neurologist privately (my doctor has referred me and im on the waiting list through the NHS) but this could take up to 2yrs!! Can anyone tell me how i'd go about getting an appointment as i dont know how to go about it myself!! I dont think i can suffer another 2yrs or more of these painful feet as my lifr is starting to become restricted in the things i can do!! Thanx for all your comments and replies, its very much appreciated...
