Burning sensation in nipple. Diagnosed with pre diabetes. On lexapro. Cause of burning?

I am experiencing a burning sensation in my right nipple . It was in both, but the left has subsided. I have recently been diagnosed with pre- diabetes . I am not on medication for it yet. We are trying to control it with diet and exercise. I am currently on Lexapro . Could any of these items be causing the burning sensation?

Hi
I do not think so, pre -diabetes or lexapro should not be causing the burning sensation .Burning sensation after prolonged diabetes can be because of diabetic neuropathy ,which does not look a possibility in your case.
it can be because of some local factor , which need to be investigated if it is persisting.
Hope it helps.

my 83 yr old mother has red spots on each hand near the thumb joint . She has in the past had the burning and tingle in her feet. Last yr she was tested for diabetes. However, this has come and gone over about 5 years(the feet). I believe it is pre diabetes. Just 3 months ago her primary care Dr. ran a full blood panel on her which indicated all was in great working order. She also has Arthritis and I m trying to get her to a Rhumatologist. Now with the red compression looking red spots at each thumb joint of her hands I don t know if this is diabetic or arthritic related pain. Also, she told me a few nights ago that she has pain in the thumb joint...arthritis?? I m trying to get her into an endocrinologist too.
