I'm not sure if this is the right forum in which to post this or not. Some of you have made helpful posts relating to my boyfriend's newly-diagnosed Type I diabetes and the severe pain he has been suffering relating to his neuropathy. We still have not found any relief, although he has been back to his doctor and is taking gabapentin and Metanx. The pain is unrelenting and he is still not getting more than perhaps three hours of sleep on a good night. He considers his situation hopeless and believes that the pain will never end. He will not go back to the doctor because as he puts it, they just take his money and do nothing to help. He wants to die. He's been dealing with this level of pain for at least a couple of months now. We've tried massage, a neuropathy oil, and several aromatherapy options, but nothing helps. He needs some relief from the pain because he has lost all hope. I know that depression is common after a diagnosis but I don't know how to handle this. Any recommendations? Thank you for your help.
