Aches and Pains

Question from :

I have type 2 diabetes, have had swelling in my left foot for 72 hours, and in the last 12 hours, it has started to tingle. It does not hurt, and my sugars are in control. What is happening?

Answer:

Further evaluation by your physician is necessary to determine the cause of your swelling. This may or may not be related to your type�2 diabetes. As this is new onset, and is beginning to affect the nerves of your foot, don’t wait — contact your healthcare provider.
