My Endo thinks I have Neuropathy and referred me to Neurologist. I go to him in 3 weeks. I am wondering if the symptoms are typical for neuropathy. About 6 months ago, my calve muscles started twitching all the time. This goes on for about 3 months. Then the twitching moved to my shins. My calves slowed down, but still twitch some. My shins just felt like they were tingling, but my wife noticed they were actually twitching. About 6 weeks later, my right foot starts hurting, on the outside first, then my heel, and toes. My left foot started hurting a little but not as bad. After a month of hurting, my feet started burning on the bottom. They have been burning and hurting for over a month now. My Endo put me on Gabapentin 300 mg 3 times a day and it takes away about half the pain, but does not do much for the burning. I'm surprised I have neuropathy, as I have only been diabetic about 8 years. My A1C was anywhere between 7 and 8.5 during the past 8 years. I was diagnosed as type 1.5 ten weeks ago and started Levemir and Humalog. My feet started hurting 2 or 3 weeks after starting insulin. I was twitching 4 months before insulin. My A1C was 8.2 when I started insulin, down to 7.1 after 6 weeks. I haven't got A1C checked in the last 4 weeks, however my bg average has been 113 in the last 4 weeks. I check 7 times a day. I am wondering if all the twitching I have is related to neuropathy and are the sharp pains typical? My Endo doesn't think I have insulin neuritis because my A1C hasn't dropped that much. I had a EMG and nerve conductivity test done by a different Neuro 5 months ago because of the twitching and he said no neuropathy showed up. Is it common for neuropathy to show up right after starting insulin, and should it get better if I keep my A1C around 6? This has been causing me a lot of anxiety. I am 44 years old and afraid I will live in pain the rest of my life or that something worse than neuropathy may be going on with me. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Thanks in advance.
