Even in pre-diabetes, high blood glucose levels can cause nerve damage. I think I went non-controlled for too long, and now I’m facing the consequences. My Carpal Tunnel Syndrome has gotten worse in the past few months and it has been driving me nuts during the last two weeks. The lack of sleep, the pain, the numbness… It’s annoying, it’s my fault.
I’m now sleeping with bracelets and it has helped a lot. I’m also undergoing a nerve study hopefully soon because my rheumatologist told me it would be a good idea. Hello? I’m typing and I can feel the tingling. I’m taking anti-inflammatory meds already and it seems to be working. I’m being tested for Lupus, but I seriously think it’s all diabetes-related.
Anyway, it’s just reality knocking on my door. At least my levels are “normal” now.
