Is This Peripheral Neuropathy?

Recommended Posts

I've noticed a few times over the past say 4-6 months that I'll get a tingling, itchy sensation on my right hand. It usually involves the skin on the back of my hand, my pinky finger mostly, sometimes the area near my wrist joint, sometimes my other fingers, but definitely most noticeable in the pinky. No pain. No numbness. Usually my hand will feel cold (but my hands and feet are always cold). I'll notice it most often when I'm driving or typing. I don't seem to have this sensation anywhere else, just the right hand. I was thinking carpal tunnel but descriptions of that seem to indicate it's more a thumb and fore finger issue and I don't notice any issues at night.

I have not been diagnosed yet with celiac (neg blood tests) and have been gluten free for just over 2 weeks.

Diagnosed NCGS April 2012 after battling headaches, canker sores, bloating, heartburn, epigastric pain, buzzed feeling, extreme fatigue, muscle aches, and nausea since November 2010.

gluten-free since November 2011
