Neuropathy Question


#1

I have neuropathy in my feet. Shoe inserts help.

Some days my fingers, particularly ones I use to test, develop severe numbness in the fingertips.

Neuropathy or finger sticks?

@T1Forever you might try running warm water over your fingertips before testing. If that helps, it might be something as simple as cold fingers. As an aside, I find that the warm water helps to get a larger blood drop, especially in the morning when testing is the hardest for me.

Severe numbness might be neuropathy, might be from scarring from finger testing and might also be from tendonitis from either of the 2 wrist tendons depending on which fingers hurt the most.
