Hello, I am new to this forum. I have had Type 2 Diabetes for 5 years now, and have had pain in my feet for 4 years. I have recently developed pain in my spine and both rotator cuffs. After several visits to my PCP I finally rec'd a referal to a Orthopedic dr. who did an MRI on the lumbar. He found 2 bulging discs and have prescribed steroid injection, which I had a few weeks ago. The relief was only 5 days long. I cannot get very much information from any of my doctors as to precisely what is going on with my body. It is very frustrating because I am told I have arthritis but when I ask specific questions all I get is very general and vague answers. I have told my PCP about my pains and he just tells me to do the best I can and seems to not care. I have had to have my meds adjusted several times after struggling with this condition. I currently take 1000mg Metformin twice a day, and 10mg Glipizide twice a day. After a recent hospital stay for chest pain and high glucose levels I was also prescribed Pravastatin 40mg once at night, and Lisinopril 5mg once at night.
