Here to help you with my expert advice and medical knowledge!!!
any blood test for thyroid levels?
they did a normal blood work up, not sure if that was part of it
thyroid TSH, T3 AND T4 levels?
Any tingling along with hot/warm sensation?
sorry, I'm not sure...I don't have a copy of the results.
Yes, it feels like warm water under my skin
Is this sensation localized to one point only or diffuse?
It varies. It used to be localized to my middle back. Although, recently it has been in my upper back, shoulders, and upper arms...currently in all those areas at once.
This can be due to nerve irritation or entrapment of nerve in the spine. Diabetes, thyroid disease, neuropathy can have a burning sensation.
You should get few investigation done to find out exact cause.
Investigations like MRI of back , electromyography (EMG), Nerve conduction velocity study, Estimation of the Vitamin B1, B6, B12 in the blood , thyroid function test and blood test to rule out diabetes.
I had the fasting blood glucose test and it was 100, which I understand to be in the high normal range.
it is little above normal..
What was your blood sugar level after eating good.
I've never taking my blood sugar after eating.
This dose not indicate diabetes.
Fasting plasma glucoseshould be below 6.1 mmol/l (110 mg/dl). Fasting levels between 6.1 and 7.0 mmol/l (110 and 125 mg/dl) are borderline ("impaired fasting glycaemia"), and fasting levels repeatedly at or above 7.0 mmol/l (126 mg/dl) are diagnostic of diabetes
You should get other test .. MRI of back will require to rule out pinched nerve..
Okay, I will look into that. Thank you for your time, this will help inform my doctor.
i hope this helped.
