I booked an appointment tomorrow with the nurse at my dr. office that I'm a little nervous about. Of course, much of this nervousness comes from Dr. Google, which will tell you that if you sneeze more than 3 times an hour you're about to die or something like that.
I have been having some numbness in my feet for awhile now, off and on, and recently it's starting in my fingers - the ring finger and pinky finger on each hand, more so on my left hand. But it is both feet, around my toes.
Google this and you get several suggestions, none of which are "oh, that's normal." It's MS, or diabetes, or nerve damage. Or a stroke, but I know it's not that.
Given a family history of diabetes (not from birth, later in life), and some other symptoms that COULD be related, such as excessive thirst, frequently using the restroom, and occasionally getting lightheaded after not eating for a few hours...it isn't impossible. I've had bloodwork within the past two years that didn't show anything like that but I think since the numbness keeps recurring I should get it looked at.
Just nervous at potential results. I'm even nervous at the possible testing that I may have to undergo. I don't do well with most medical procedures, mentally, so I'm a bit scared.
Hoping that it's just circulation or something simple.
