So I went to the dr. today because of the "strange feelings" in my legs. She said it's a mild case of neuropathy. I don't have diabetes...at least my tests have all been normal..but she wants to do the 2 hour blood glucose test. I guess a lot of people have neuropathy with unknown origins.
I have to tell you I burst into tears! With all that has happened in the last year I just thought "why this?" There isn't a cure. I suppose you can slow the progression, but all I could think of was that I would be in a wheelchair and/or in a ton of pain (right now, I don't really have pain, just odd feelings). The dr. said that I SHOULD NOT WORRY. But, that's hard not to do.
I still have other tests to go through, so I'm trying not to get too upset or anxious about this. I've started to look at websites and spark teams to get support.
Of course, what's the best way to slow the progression? Lose weight, exercise every day and eat right! Ahhhh!
