T2, diagnosed in 05. Well for the last month now I seem to have
developed some neuropathy. Both feet have a numb feeling, almost as if
they are "asleep." It started with extreme pain that lasted about a
week. I was lucky I had some pain killers on hand. Now most of the pain
is gone, but it comes back at times, but my feet have lost some
sensation. And wearing shows is really not at all comfortable. I get
all kinds of weird sensations from gravel in my shoes to walking on
cobblestones. My toes really hurt in shoes and I wear loose shoes.
What are people's experience?
Best thing is to get your BG under control. I also take Evening Primrose
Oil, 2,000 mg twice daily. It's supposed to help. I haven't really
noticed one way or the other.
I no longer get the horrid pains I once did. Nor do I get the sensation
of walking on rocks or of wearing socks even when I'm not. I also used to
not be able to feel my feet at all. Now there is some decreased
sensation, especially with the compression hose off. I wear those for
other reasons. Also if I step on something there could be extreme pain.
I take EPO and Lecithin. To what do you attribute the changes in your feet?
I hate the feeling that there is a big rock under the ball of my right foot,
but only when I wear shoes. I may switch to sandals. My toes - oy.
I posted earlier about going on insulin. I am having tests on Thursday and
an endo appointmnet in May. For now I am extreme low carbing. Got my
fasting down to about 145 (from 200).
