In April of 2012 I started developing tingling in both my feet and hands. No pain but lately it sometimes occurs on my back now. I had blood test done and there were no signs of vitamin deficiencies or thyroid problems. I am 59 years old, borderline diabetic (200 glucose levels) and a heavy diet coke drinker. I went to a neurologist and he did some rudimentary test and told me it was not anything serious and to purchase some carpal tunnel gloves for my hands. I stopped going to him for 5 months and my regular gp told me to go back to this neurologist and ask for a nerve conduction test. If anyone have any information or strategies that may help it would be appreciated

Are you taking any medications regularly for high BP or cholesterol? Sometimes they can be culprits in neuropathy.

I would go and the nerve conduction test done to make sure its not nerve damage.

Certain vitamins like Niacin can do this.

Are you taking a lot of vitamins??

In April of 2012 I started developing tingling in both my feet and hands. ... I am 59 years old, borderline diabetic (200 glucose levels) and a heavy diet coke drinker.

You could have Insulin Resistance, which is usually caused by a diet too high in simple sugars (high glycemic carbs). Also... Diet Coke can trigger an insulin response, which could worsen Insulin Resistance.

Do you eat a low carbohydrate diet that emphasizes low glycemic carbs?

Thanks for all the responses. I do not take any bp or cholestrol meds. I do take wellbutrin and saphris though. I am having the nerve conduction test done in November. My diet is average I do eat carbs and do eat dessert on a regular basis, though do not drink regular sodas. I am not taking a lot of vitamins. When this started I was in very good shape and exercising regularly.

I looked up the side effect for Wellbutrin and tingling (parathesis) is listed. You might want to discuss this with your doctor. It could be the culprit. :)
