Hi. I am female, 61 years of age, so-so active, diabetic for about 3 yrs. Lately I am noticing my hair falling out more that usual, white spots on my hands and underarms, fatigued more than usual. I am not due for blood work for a couple of months, but normally everything checks out. My diabetes is usually a little high (6.1 to 6.4). Could I possibly have a vitamin deficiency that could be is causing these issues? Please advise. Thank you. Vicki Harbarger

Earlier today I had cortisone injection in my wrist for De Quervain s. An hour later my hand was still tingling and sore, and my hand and forearm was really cold, even though warm outside. Non-injected arm & hand fine. This lasted for about 2 hours. Now, my hand is a bit sore but not as cold anymore.

After receiving cortisone injections, the next day I get a facial flushing. I went for a cortisone injection today for a neuroma in my foot. I mentioned this to the doctor and he did not want to give me an injection until I check this out. I have had it happen several times in the past, and it comes on the next day lasting only 24 hours. Is there anything to worry about?
