So I have a few questions about neuropathy....for those of you that have it,  do you have it in BOTH feet/legs,  or do you have one leg worse then the other?  Also anyone get it in your hands?  thank you.

With me it started in my feet, both of them. and in the beginning it seemed that one foot was worse than the other. Over the years it has progressed up my legs so that now I have a lot of reduced feeling in my lower legs as well.

about 4 years after being DX'd with it in my feet I have begun to notice my hands are getting numb and at times have some of that same kind of shooting pains I get in my feet.

I hope I answered your questions.

yes,  thank you.     I have been sent to ER for numbness/tingling feelings mostly on my right side.    There were white matter lesions on my brain, and now going through testing for MS>   I don't think I have MS,  but then wondering if its not MS, then what is it?    The only thing I can think of would be my Diabetes,   but wasn't sure if it would involve one side more than the other.   I was always under the assmption that Diabetic neuropathy was mostly bilateral (on both sides,  equally)but I know that by asking what other diabetics have going on could answer.  Anyways thanks.   :D

found some slight numbness at the bottom of my toes came about rather interestingly I was scratching the sheet laying over me and noticed a difference while running my feet back and fourth Panic set in! but in the last 6 months it hasn't progressed my Dr. has said it most likely is neuropathy and May get better with better control I hope so for both our sakes also FYI back disc problems may also cause neuropathy as well.

Hmm, back disc problems? My back hurts, but only in the early morning after laying down and sleeping for a few hours. I have a weird slightly numb area above my left knee. Neither problem has been explained nor diagnosed, but my doctor does not think it's neuropathy as I have no numbing in my toes and I have good circulation in my feet too, for now. I've also been to physiotherapy where the therapist stretched and twisted my back for a few sessions worth. It helped a little, but didn't remove the back problems completely. Exercising helps, I think.
