I suffer from back pain, due to multiple back surgeries - but, more recently, since I started my 20 unit Lantus regimen before bedtime, along with my morning and evening 500 mg Metformin dosing, my pain threshold has gotten very low - in other words, I hurt more - in more places. Is this normal for people who, like myself, have been diagnosed with Type 1 late in the game, as I have?
The weather lately has been overcast, and rainy - before I was diagnosed with diabetes, I still had pain on those 'low pressure cell' days - but, now, I have a major pain underneath my shoulder blade. My wife, Linda, says that it is more than likely my scapular muscle - she's a licensed message therapist, and, her massage techniques usually helped with most pain.
This time, however, nothing seems to help, and it feels similar to a 'charley horse' - but, sometimes, it can take my breath away. My breathing, otherwise, is fine. I'm going to see my doctor tomorrow, but, has anyone ever had a similar experience? Thanks.
