hi, as you have not cleared the status about your sugars post delivery, we do not know whether you are diabetic now or not. the symptoms that you have described seem to be neuropathic and can be due to nutritional deficiencies specially of vitamin B12, folic acid and vitamin D. these deficiencies do get aggravated post delivery , during lactation and more of if you have gestational diabetes. pls check your vitamin B12 levels, vitamin 25 (OH) D levels and get them corrected. if the symptoms still persist you need to see a doctor.
