No Pain Needle Sticks
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

Good morning to all. I wanted to share my new find. PIP is the name of the company. They sell diabetic supplies. I received a starter kit with 3 different needle sizes for finger sticks. Also purchased a box of pen needles. What they said is true. No pain nor bruising from needle sticks. Amazing. I'm a fan! Prices are reasonable. Don't know if I'm allowed to show more information on contacting them.

Awoke this morning with right foot swollen and have been having burning sensation in little… read more

What I forgot to mention is it feels like I have a wound or cut, but there is nothing there, my spouse keeps checking my feet but nothing found, no redness, no sores, just feels like something is there, my feet are not dry either, it is just an anoying thing I learned to live with, but clawed toes is advanced sign of something nerve related. I have hyperlax joints as physio mentioned to me in the past, so my joints can reversed at times, this time around today also I cannot lay those toes flat as I used to, they are staying in a clawed position since yesterday (or maybe before and I never noticed it), I do not wear close shoes unless leaving the apartment, I wear a 2 strap shoe which my toes are not cramped in them as the 1st strap passes the toe joints (except the big toe) and sitting on the top of my foot and another strap near the ankle. Just took a photo, I have flat feet so usually my toes lay flat, I cannot seem to lay them flat today nor yesterday, tried moving them and they do move slowly but cannot control as much as usual, they are resting in clawed position and it is slightly uncomfortable. Hoping this will pass, but if symptoms worsen I may need to have a MRI and check if the back disc is worse as yesterday I had a little incident, I though I was having gas as I have been last few days, but it was not gas unfortunately, and a torn L5-S1 can cause incontinence of both bowel and urine (which I am on bladder medications from my paralysis in 2017, the bladder nerve was damaged for life), but never once had incontinence of bowels, so I am watching this closely, it can also caused paralysis which happened to my left foot in 2017, back them could not move my big toe at all and kept dragging my foot and tripping a lot. I am hoping the bowel issue was just an oops thing and not heading toward something worse.
