I had painful tingling in both hands and milder tingling in both feet the year before we went on our weightloss journey in response to my dh's heart attack. I could hardly hold a pencil, nor open the drawers of my desk at work. But the symptoms began to diminish very soon after we began our new eating regime, cutting out all added sugar, white flour baked goods and saturated fats, eating lots of fresh fruit and veggies, raw or simply prepared. We both lost a lot of weight, and the tingling faded to nearly nothing, plus strength returned to my hands. I get a mild recurrance occasionally when I let our eating rules slip, especially around the holidays or when we go on vacation and eat out a lot for a time. It is a strong reminder to get back on track! RAD can mess with your nerves, as can prediabetes. Either or both could be causing this, or several other things. You should tell your Dr., learn the extent of the damage, what is causing it and whether it can be reversed. Don't ignore it - the tingling can turn to constant fiery pain in extreme cases, and be very debilitating. I hope you get a good helpful report! God Bless!
