Answer

Hi Yvonne

My ears perked up when you said you had numbness and tingles in your hands. Here is information from Medline Plus about this symptom. Has your doctor run any tests to see what is causing this? It would be worth checking out as things like Diabetes or Multiple Sclerosis can cause this...as well as many other things. I have MS myself so I am especially aware of possible symptoms.

Thanks for coming to this site and we hope to hear more from you.
