Numbness in feet?

I've had fibro for many years and have experienced, every once in awhile, a tingling or a numb-feeling in my feet. This time my toes, especially, have the numb feeling. I've had the problem where I have to sit while I'm combing my hair and putting on makeup in the morning. I actually have to get a chair and sit down until I'm finished. My right leg bothers me more this time. I can barely walk until, as my husband puts it, "I'm up and rolling". It feels like I can actually feel the blood rushing through my legs. Does anyone ever have this problem? My next blood test (next month), I'm going to ask to be checked for diabetes. I have no other symptoms, but who knows???
