I just want to be clear the burning tingling, heavy feelings in my legs & arms all been occuring since 2007, worce since 2011, and even worse lately. I haven't injected insulin since 8/30/12, so I would agree if I were still diabetic that it was diabetic neuropathy but I had this before pregnancy, intensified all thru pregnancy & has hung on after pregnancy. My A1C was 5.0 just a few weeks ago because I wasn't able to breastfeed very long due to my BP being to out of control using labatol only they didn't do my "final" blood work until after i stopped because breastfeeding throws the numbers off. I have an excellent endocrinologist who specializes in the link between certain BP medications & diabetes, he also is very focused on cholesterol & it's effects on the liver & blood so all of that is well monitored. I have a heart problem (tachycardia) & have BP isssues as well they don't know why, I can be sleeping they found thru the use of a halter monitor 24hrs that my pulse will be 150bpm & then be 66bpm.
I work with a nutritionist already because of my health issues, & for the most part we eat a Mediterranean diet, my husband can not digest beef or similar meats so we basically eat boneless chicken breasts, ground pork or turkey for the bulk of the meals.
My magnesium & zinc are also perfectly fine, they have tested that too because def of those can mimic B12 def & because they can play a roll in funky heart rhythms, I am about out of blood for them to test I think
As a result of having the tumor removed from my pituitary gland I have adrenal insufficiency & prednisone is the only thing I can use to treat it when my levels are to low but I have been years without a crisis & my last cort stem came back fine. They monitor my thyroid anyhow every 3 months & when I was pregnant my sugar levels, because prednisone & other steroids can wreak havoc on you sugar levels & insulin resistance.
I was tested for Lyme disease twice now with negative results - have only been bit by a tick once after the 1st test & before the '13 negative result, when it happened I was actually given the antibiotic to take that day. In Maine they take Lyme disease very seriously thankfully because of the deer & moose population it's a huge problem.
As a side note no I am not depressed
I am in love with my son, and happily gave up my career to be a mommy who stayed home with her son. I would love nothing more then to figure out what is sucking the life out of his mommy because he is the happiest & brightest thing that has ever happened to me.
