Tingling Hands are Not so Harmless
If you were to tell someone that your tingling hands were really bothering you, they would more than likely think you were a bit of a complainer. How serious or problematic can tingling hands be?
If you were to tell that to a medical professional, they would take it more seriously, because it can be related to diabetes. When someone has this symptom, it is often accompanied by tingling in the feet.
Why does it happen?
The tingling in your extremities, if diabetes has caused it, happens because diabetes not only affects blood circulation, but also impacts the nervous system. The nerves then become damaged, which is the onset of neuropathy.
This seemingly harmless symptom is just the beginning…if your feet haven’t already started tingling, they probably will soon, and it can progress to numbness, burning, shooting and stabbing pains, and difficulty walking and sleeping.
For the millions of Americans who experience neuropathy, it can be a life changing, debilitating situation, for which there is very little hope offered.
At the Bellevue Pain Institute, we treat Neuropathy with Low Level Laser Therapy, which has been giving our patients great relief from their pain and symptoms. The treatment is painless, drug free and non-invasive. Our patients are thrilled with results that many of them experience in a short period of time.
