I have been diagnosed with type 2. I have also been diagnosed with polyneuropathy and am currently taking the gabapentin and metformin. My doc said that my blood sugar level should be between 70 and 100 and I am taking insulin to keep it at that level; it jumps up and down between 95 and 140 often but i am doing pretty good to keep it around where it should be.
The problem is that the pain is constant in my feet, ankles, legs arms and hands; shooting pains that don't go away. I was told keeping the level down will help the pain subside, but that is not the case. It is so bad sometimes that I have to double up on the Norco just to be able to watch TV. My doc is throwing the kitchen sink at me with nerve meds like diclofenac and it does not even begin to help.
I am looking to see if there is something else wrong because my doc, the endocrinologist and the neurologist are not getting anywhere.View Thread
