According to WebMD, High blood sugar levels can cause a range of symptoms, including pain and discomfort in various parts of the body. Here are some of the body parts that you might notice pain if your blood sugar level is high:
High blood sugar levels can cause nerve damage, which is known as neuropathy. This can cause pain and numbness in the feet, making it difficult to walk or stand for long periods.
Just like with the feet, high blood sugar levels can also cause neuropathy in the hands, resulting in pain, tingling, and numbness.
High blood sugar levels can damage the blood vessels in the eyes, leading to a condition known as diabetic retinopathy. This can cause blurry vision, eye pain, and even blindness if left untreated.
High blood sugar levels can cause dry mouth, which can lead to painful sores and infections in the mouth.
High blood sugar levels can also lead to skin problems, including dryness, itching, and infections. In some cases, people with high blood sugar levels may also develop painful skin ulcers.
High blood sugar levels can cause gastroparesis, a condition in which the stomach takes longer than usual to empty its contents. This can cause pain, bloating, and nausea.
