Hello, I am a 35 year old woman. I suddenly for a month now have had tingling in my hands and feet. I have a very frostbite cold sensation on my feet but I have had that for years. The tingling and the weird feelings on my feet and hands is worse at night and I have terrible night sweats. I also have a jerking movement in my arms and legs at night, I cant explain except I feel like i have to move them because of the tingling and when I dont it does it anyway, if that makes sense? I also have hand tremors. My father has severe neuropathy and cannot walk in the evenings he is 55, he inherited it from his father. My mother has neuropathy also but its a milder form, she has hand tremors very bad. No one in my family is diabetic. My question is does this sound like neuropathy to you or possibly something else? I have no insurance so I am so reluctant to go and make doctors bills I cannot afford.

Neuropathy is a likely culprit, but other things could be causing (or exacerbating) your problems. Vitamin deficiencies (especially B12 or D) or mineral deficiencies (magnesium or potassium) can also cause the same symptoms. I understand the insurance problem, but you really ought to see a neurologist to be evaluated properly. At the age of 35, you are still very young, and you may have a good chance of correcting your problem before it gets worse.

Call your local hospital and explain your financial situation. You may be able to work out a payment plan that fits your budget, and you may qualify for government assistance. I'd hate for you to have to suffer because of a lack of insurance. If you call around, I expect there is help available to you. Consider contacting a local church or other charitable organization for help.
