I'm 32 years old, no major health problems, but do have a monster of a sweet tooth. Anyway, I experience intermittent bouts of tingling and numbness in my fingers and hands, mostly my left, but sometimes right side.
My mom started having these symptoms at my age and blames it on her pregnancy with my brother (which makes no sense to me). She continues to suffer from progressive peripheral neuropathy of uncertain origin. She won't get a spinal tap to confirm or rule out MS. She also has seizures, confusion and fatigue, which she did not have earlier on in life.
Now that I am having neuropathic symptoms and have seen her health degenerate, it is difficult to not become terrified. Does this sound like diabetes? Lupus? MS?
I also have constipation and sweating, but think it is related to my antidepressants (Wellbutrin 300 and Effexor 75, both extended release).
Any ideas??? Thanks for any help you can give me.
