Really weird things happening in my hands and toes within the last 3 months or so. At first, I started to get occcasional busrsts of "electricity" firing down both arms right to my fingertips. This got progressively worse through the end of the summer, then subsided. Soon after, the "electricity feeling was replaced by a dulling of my middle finger on both hands. Just the tips actually.
That dullness started to spread to both ring fingers, and slowly has crept up to the knuckles of both hands. I cant really feel temperatures or pain with either hand. They are weak, and feel like they are "asleep" and wont wake up. Like if you were making snowballs and your hands get ice-cold....thats how my hands feel all the time now.
In addition to this stuff, I have the same kind of numbness hitting the big toes on both feet, and sometimes the rest of the toes feel like rocks or wood. Balance is tricky, sometimes I feel like my legs arent "mine"....especially when climbing stairs or trying to jog or run. They dont want to move as quickly as my brain wants them to go. I even fell down when coming down stairs because i simply did not feel the ground when I stepped down.
The worst part of this is I am unable to play my bass anymore....my fingers dont feel the strings enough to accurately play them. Its killing me!!!
My mom and aunt both had me get my blood sugar tested (which is easy enough since the gf is a type 1 diabetic) and my blood sugar numbers are consistently in the healthy range every time I test. Safe to say I dont have diabetes. Other than that, I am at a loss here. No health insurence at this tme, but I am going to enroll in the county charity care so I can get checked out soon. Im just wondering, is anyone else going through this, or have you had similar symptoms?
