When diagnosed I didn't think I had a problem with my feet. When my blood sugar dropped a lot I found out different. At first my feet just felt cold. Then they felt like I was working 16 hours a day on my feet. I bought some of the pads you put in your shoes. I eventually had to use 2 pads. Then the stabbing pains started. It felt like someone was sticking needles in my feet. The pain would come and go. Mostly hurt the worst after work. Then the numb tingling feeling started. I still have the numb tingling feeling 2 years later. I believe there getting better. But its still there. I read somewhere that if we can keep our blood sugar close to normal numbers the nerves in our feet will eventually heel themselves. At least thats what I'm hoping. My A1C went from 14.1 to 5.9 in about 4 months. Has remained below 6 ever since. If and when my feet completely heal I will post about it. So far I'm still in the healing phase. Hopefully soon I will be healed. I heard someone mention someplace that he figured it was going to take him about 5 years to heal. All we can do is learn to control our blood sugar and hope for the best.

I am going through the same thing myself. I am still looking some information, plus started on my finger as well. I have an appointment with my doctor next week. I will post anything I learn.
