    as i have continous pins and needles in the toes on my right foot. I am nervous as both my mum and nan had / has weight related diabetes.
    i havent got any of the other symptoms though.

    I had a trapped nerve which caused pain initially, however, when I was recieving treatment & as it was getting better I often got pins & needles.

    Worrying is just wasted energy, wait until after you've seen the doctor, it could be diabeties or something completely different.

    Good luck

    thanks for that. I'm not worrying as i know that if it was the early stages of diabetes then with SW diet and exercise there is a strong possibility that i can get rid of it within six months.

    Just to reassure you diabetes is not the end of the world.

    I was insulin dependant but the healthy regime and weightloss mans I am no longer insulin dependent. It can be reversed!

    Good luck

    Really hard to explain, and there's no cure :(

    It's like when you sit still your legs get all achy/crampy/pins and needly and you just have to move them or stamp your feet or something.

    It's really irritating and has had me in tears on occasion.

    Not nice but also not dangerous. Try googling it xx

    Hi Tara. I had something similar last year, constant tingling/slight numbness in my legs constantly for about 6 weeks. Went docs and had loads of tests done including the usual blood tests, MRI scan, nerve conductor test but they all came back fine. The tingling eventually wore off and the doc said it could have been a virus that attacks the ends of the nerves and causes the tingling. The body eventually fights the virus and the tingling wears off. I'm not saying this is what you have but just thought I'd share my experience.

    Hope you get it sorted. x
