I'm not sure, but I think I might be having symptoms of neuropathy. I would really appreciate your insight.
Sometimes, I'll be sitting down on the floor on my knees, you know with my feet kind of tucked under. Well, sometimes my feet fall asleep afterwards, and I know that's normal. What's not normal is how long my feet stay asleep and how red they get after I get up. Normally, things are back to normal when your feet fall asleep after a minute or so and start walking around, right? Well, mine stay that way, get really red, and get that pricking feeling for about 5 minutes. Walking it off doesn't help. As a matter of fact, it hurts too much to walk when they're like that. This has been going on for maybe a few weeks. I'm not sure if it's neuropathy, but it seems like it. I don't understand why it would be though, since my a1cs have been consistently in the 5-6% range for the past 4 1/2 years since I was diagnosed. My blood sugars are usually pretty stable also, so I don't really understand. Can you please maybe tell me your theories as to what might be happening? I would really appreciate it!
