you can try them and see what you think...I prefer the skinnier glasses now as I can look over them and that seems to work for me, I get less dizzy than with the real bifocals and I can see well enough now most of the time without any distance glasses..
I have been having a glass of wine with dinner most nights now unless my reflux kicks in.. the thing is I don't know if the symptoms are neuropathy.. I had them long before I had diabetes I'm sure, from nerve damage in my neck and back years ago in a car accident... they called it radiculation, it was supposed to go away and but it never did. As far as I know I only had high bg for 3 months or so preceding DKA, so I didn't have that long enough to even have developed neuropathy as far as I know, I will ask my endo about that and see what he thinks about the wine... when I drank wine or alcohol in the past, long before D, but after my injuries, I had the same symptoms, which I had without the wine etc. too. It seems to be from compression of nerves in my neck and back.
I was taking a lot of b12 which is supposed to help tingling I recently read, but now I've stopped as my b12 level was high at my last test and I was worried it may be too high.
The new doctor said he doesn't think alcohol is a good idea but he didn't say why.. I read here the main reason they tell us not to drink is due to possibly passing out from low bg or going into dka and not getting the treatment we need due to them thinking we are drunk, I wear a bracelet at all times and I assume they would test for alcohol levels before making assumptions.
I read that wine every day is good for you too so I really don't want to give it up...
I'm not sure about pot as I don't really like the way it makes me feel, but I suppose I could try it again, I can function pretty well on one glass of wine or so but I become pretty non functional on pot from what I remember, as well as paranoid... Of course if I have neuropathy I will try it to see if it will help! That would be fun getting my insurance to cover it... Maybe I can just grow it myself and put it in low carb brownies, lol.
But seriously the tingling isn't really that bad to have, you get used to it... I have had it on and off for years and it comes and goes... I think the blood clot made it worse in my feet for sure..... the blood all seems to pool up in your feet and it feels like a tingly pressure. I was told to wear compression socks and now to switch to a milder compression since it has been reabsorbed with no scarring. the new doc says he thinks my circulation is very good and my pulse in my legs is very good, so I guess all is well there at least.
I wanted to mention to you, if you haven't tried them for the running calf cramps, that the compression socks are supposed to be great for runners/running in helping prevent cramps/pain and in healing injuries.. they made a huge difference in my intial dvt pain, which was quite severe, the pain reduced by about 75% as soon as put them on and I was able to take less pain killers. The key was to put them on before even getting out of bed everyone said.
