Q: What causes itching hands and feet?

I have diabetes, a heart condition, and neuropathy. My feet burn and sting all the time, and then sometimes my face tingles, too. I also have problems with my hip, toes, and kidneys. I just have too many things going on with my heath and it does get to me. I feel like I am falling apart and I am only 44.

I am really sorry you're going through this, Teresa.  It sounds like you have a lot on your plate, and it's normal for it to get you a little down. You might consider joining a support group for people who have your conditions, and you can always interact with our Heart Disease or Diabetes Communities here on HealthCentral. There are many people dealing with the issues you are, and knowing that sometimes makes a big difference in helping people not to feel alone with their illnesses.


In the meantime, here are some links you might find useful and you're living with your health issues.  Best of luck to you, and please be well.
