Comment:
From day 1 I awoke with numbness in my arms and hands. Unlike, many others however, I'm able to sleep through through the night without any difficulty. For which I am thankful, but to awake without use of my hands really isn't much of a trade off. My M.D.s' are working on a solution that won't interefere w/ my other meds.

I have had severe muscle soreness and have experienced extreme weakness. My last bloodwork now indicates elevated blood sugar levels and this has never been a problem before. I will be consulting my doctor for an alternative solution.
