Buzzing/vibrations in left foot.
Hi all, soon to be 50 year old male, I was diagnosed with T2D in August 2022 with A1c of 12.5. Reduced my A1c by 4.4% points in 3 months to 8.1. In October I developing acute onset of SFN (burning feet, cold feet and hypersensitivity in feet) I was diagnosed with Insulin Neuritis (Treatment Induced Neuropathy) in January by neurologist. This was awful but has since got a lot better as BG normalizes.
As I was reducing my A1c in November, before being diagnosed with TIND, I noticed for about 2 days, a buzz in my left foot. 10-15 seconds of buzz and a few minutes of no buzz. After that stopped in left foot, I got it in right foot the next week. Same symptoms and lasted for 2 days.
Fast forward to this last Sunday, this buzz has started again in left foot but has been 20-25 seconds of buzz and a minute or so of no buzz. Coincidentally, my A1c as of yesterday was 5.5. So dropped A1c 7 points in 7.5 months.
Yesterday, Neurologist conducted a physical exam specifically for MS as I asked her to. She saw no symptoms for MS or reason to order an MRI for MS. She was confident it’s not ALS related.
It feels like a tiny pulse or cell phone vibration. There is no pain with it…it’s just annoying and distracting to sleep. No pins and needles or numbness.
Saw my GP and he also sees no reason for MRI for MS. They both seem to think it’s part of the recovery from the SFN as nerves regenerate and reinnervate.
Has anyone else experienced this buzzing sensation in their feet and does anyone know if it’s diabetes related? If so, how long did it last?
