Tingling in limbs

For about a year now I have had extreme tingling in my arms and legs..normally on my right side only. When I urinate, even after hydrating like crazy, my urine is very yellow and very strong smelling.  I have had muscle fatigue and my muscles have been twitching throughout the day esp in calves. I seem to be sore all the time and generally tired.  my musles in my back and shoulders are always sore..like i worked them out until i couldn't take it anymore!!.....sleep does not help!! I wake up feeling as if I haven't slept in days! I've been constipated quite a few times lately too!! I just can't, for the life of me, figure out what is wrong. I'm very worried b/c I know my body and I know something is very wrong. I've gained about 5 lbs in the last couple months...I seem to always be hungry and never satisfied!!No fever..or swollen lymph nodes..no vomitting ...i just don't know.

There are a few possibilities in you case.First is diabetes mellitus.Pls get your blood sugar evaluated.These tingling sensations also called parasthesias,increased hunger,change in body weight and urination are common in diabetics.Other possibilities may be hypothyroidism, hypoparathyroidism, peripheral vascular disease, peripheral nerve compression,vitamin B12 deficiency ,malnutrition causing low sodium,calcium and vit D deficiency, transient ischemic attack, motor neurone disease, or autoimmune disorders like multiple sclerosis or lupus erythematosus,fibromyalgia and chrinic fatigue syndrome

I feel that without clinical examination and investigations,diagnosis is tough.So pls consult a physician to rule out the above possibilities.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing.
