I'm a 25 year old, seemingly healthy female. I noticed today that the top of my feet are swollen. That has never happened before. Then I laid down and immediately my left leg began tingling, but was worse above the knee near the inner thigh, with mild shooting pain down the entire front of my leg. Basically feels like my leg is asleep. Could this be an early sign of Diabetes? I'm worried about blood clots too, don't know the symptoms of those. I'm hoping the water retention is just from sitting too long, and the leg tingling is from a pinched nerve in my back. But I do have a few other symptoms of Diabetes (always thirsty, dry mouth, hypoglycemic). I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!View Thread
