Hi all, 6 months ago started with very odd cramping in feet and lesser in hands for no reason - then turned to severe twitching (had for years) - still does this but then morphed into 24/7 burning feet, hands, up to knees and up to elbows, and all skin super sensitive from head to toe. Really painful and scary. I am not diabetic, but my A1C has been hovering at 5.9 - 5.7 - 5.8 over the past year - which in the USA is prediabetic. Had a Nerve Conduction Test of my feet and it came back borderline low but normal sensory and normal good range for motor. All other tests 100% normal. The Neuro said likely mild polyneuropathy BUT could not diagnose this and said no conclusive evidence to label me with neuropathy (if this is mild, wtf...) I've had bouts of burning feet and skin for years, but rarely lasting more than a few days. In hindsight I've had periods were my feet burned in shoes in summer. The weirdest part is it all let up to 80% better for about a week or so then came all back. I'm treating it as pre-diabetes - I've cut out carbs and sugar, lost 15lbs, taking lots of supplements, trying to improve sleep. I figure if it's not diabetic pain from years of being pre-diabetic, it would still be good to get on my A1C and lose excess belly fat (BMI says I should be 200lbs - I was 240lbs mostly around belly - now down to 225lbs) It fits pretty close to diabetic neuropathy in symptoms, but doesn't explain why in a flash it's moving so fast up legs and arms with fairly low A1C and normal fasting blood sugar, nor why I've had brief remissions. I'm wondering if it's TMS and by getting my A1C and belly fat in order I'm feeding the fear (yes - lots of that!)? It started about a month after getting re-elected with a new council - I personally did well by getting more votes than anyone else including the mayor, but now I'm on the 'bottom' with a target on my back so feel trapped. Plus I'm still a high school teacher which gets harder and harder plus taking care of my mum who almost died recently (doing better now) my wife in ER (doing better too) and three little kids. Argh! Or it's just diabetes starting.
