Unhappy neuropathy

: This diabetic neuropathy hurts so bad I want to cry.I take 1 80 mg pain killer 3x a day and 1 15 mg in between and I still can't walk,this rots.I think when I first was diagnosed as being diabetic my dr had me mixing 45 units of humalin n and 15 r which I think did morre harm than good.That was 15 yrs ago and now I see a different dr and he took me off injections almost 3 yrs ago and I only take metformin 2x a day.What was that dr trying to do kill me? I had told him about the pain and numbness but all he ever did was increase my insulin intake.I have very good days but today is one of the really bad ones because it's supposed to start raining.Does anybody have any suggestions??

I'm very sorry to hear of your troubles, but am very interested to find out whether the TENS works. Are you going to use it for your foot pain? (rather than the hand), and where will they place the electrodes?

Best of luck to you!

When I was diagnosed I think I had the very beginnings of neuropathy, my big toes were burning and tingling at night. That's gone away now, although if I have a "bad day" and my BG spikes high, I will get shooting pains in my toes. So I would be optimistic! Good luck!

Hi troy,
if you are on any Cholesterol Medication (Statin Drugs) and you are prescribed, over 30mg, per day.
Ask your cardiologist to reduce your cholesterol medicatio in half, for a few weeks, stop your pain medication, in order to monitor any changes.Your leg pain may go away. and if your leg pain does go away, It is caused by your Cholesterol medication, and the damage done is permanent, and irrevirsible,
The pain was caused by the medication, shredding the muscle fibre, and placing it in the blood stream, whuich is filtered by the kidneys, and creates kidney damage as well. put your Cholesterol medication name, and class action behind it in your search engine.
