Welcome to NeuroTalk.
Do you take metformin for your type II?
If so, you may be low in B12, as this drug upsets B12 absorption.
Yes, the wrist splints are very useful for wrist compression.
Another thing that will cause this is low thyroid functions.
So you need some tests at the doctor's.
When you lift weights it would be good to try the wrist supports sold for that purpose to protect the ligaments of the wrist from strain, and the following inflammation that can result.
Watch your salt intake too. And avoid the additive MSG in all foods. You must read labels and avoid restaurant food for a while. (soups and certain chains like Chili's use MSG heavily)
Ask Asian places to not use MSG also.
When you get your B12 tested, ask for the results. The numbers should be 500 or above. Don't accept "normal" from doctors as they often use antequated lab ranges.
Also get a Vit D run at the same time. Low D is being found in many people, today and fixing this can fix many problems.
Please watch this video:
The video on this link can help you understand the new data on Vitamin D and how you should keep it at optimum levels.
Numbness and tingling can be a sign of poor calcium absorption, and when Vit D is low, you can have signs of this like you describe. (other things can be a cause too, but ruling this out and/or fixing it is important).

This raccoon has come out yesterday since the snow recently melted and can't decide which cherry tomato to eat first. Hubby put them on the feeding bench yesterday morning. (he doesn't like them). They were all gone by this morning.
