For 2 months I have had extreme shocking pains and numbness in both hands mostly at night, waking me every couple of hours. Standing up with arms at side is only relief. During the day the numbness and tingling continues, but not nearly as painful as when I lay down. I have been through 12 chiropractic visits, with no relief. GP ordered a nerve test (cant remember the name) but no testing facilities have available appointments for 6 weeks. I can't take too much more of the pain and lack of sleep....I feel like I am losing my mind I am soooooooo tired! I am 45, 5'5", 225 lbs. Quit smoking (cold turkey)5 months ago after 30 years....Diabetic since age 30....taking Apidra, 30 units with meals....Lantus 55 units at bedtime. No allergies, no other medications. Non-drinker, no drugs.
