Hello, I am new to this board but finally had to ask for some information to my awful symptoms. First I am diabetic type 2 and take 2 Metformin am and pm. I hurt all over! I mean all over. My head,neck and shoulder's ache. My right upper arm gets really red and sore (not my shoulder,my upper arm) ,elbow,forearm,wrist, hands and finger's.
My right hip has been pins and needles numb for maybe a year. My legs from my butt,thighs,calves, ankles,feet and toes. My legs from my knees down are pins and needle's,my middle toe is sore/numb when I put walking pressure on it. My feet hurt. I hurt.
I go for a half hour walk everyday with my dogs but I'm really sore after that. I feel beat up. I have taken to wearing compression socks just to maybe ease the tingles and aches. The pain I will describe as burning, stinging, achy
and my legs and feet have pins and needles as well. I went to the clinic yesterday and the clinic Dr sent me for a neck X-ray and bloodtest I forget what it's called but it's to see if your muscles are up to something.
I have taken Advil, Entrophin, Asprin Nightime for arthritis, Arthotec,Advil Robax, muscle relaxers and nothing helps. I think I get rebound headaches from all this medicine so what's the point. The Dr yesterday suggested diabetic neuropathy how can you tell? I go to my regular Dr Monday for test result's. If it is diabetic neuropathy I just can't believe how it seemed to come on so fast and furious.
