This is Dr. David

having diabetes, you could have diabetic neuropathy or nerve damage from diabetes causing numbness in your hands and feet

there are medications which can help including Neurontin (gabapentin) or Lyrica (pregabalin) which can help your symptoms.

you should talk to your doctor about these options.

let me know if you have other questions.
