I have been having leg tingling and some arm tingling for about 1 month, Family Doc thought maybe it was a little bit of RLS but now I am urinating more often (having to get up 2-3 times during night) and often rubing my eyes. Today after I brushed my teeth, I licked my lips and I got a really salty taste? Could this be diabetes? I am pretty healthy otherwise, good BP and never really been sick?
Frequent urination during the night is one of the symptoms of diabetes. Neglected diabetes can also affect the nerves, sometimes starting with tingling sensations.
However, neural symptoms and frequent urination might also be caused by Multiple Sclerosis in the first stages. Given the fact that you have a family history of Multiple Sclerosis, you might want to do some neurological tests for MS and check the blood for elevated blood sugar.
