The numbness is usual with Diabetes You can suggest to your doctor about a drug called nueronton to help aleve the numbness

I only get slight numbness once in a while but what my feet feel like is like they are about 6" thick. It's weird. Like they are swollen really, really big but it's just a feeling not reality. Anyone else have that? I do take neuronton but helps some of the time.

thank you. I knew she had a chance of dying sooner as she had so many "medical challenges" — many of them potentially deadly. But she was such a ray of sunshine I was drawn to her. I am glad that she came into my life, and from what her friends told me she was happy I was in her life too. She was such a joy, even when suffering from something like RA or Lupis.

I guess I didn't say it right, as my bride had passed from this life in July 2010. In fact if you go to my profile you can see a pic of her resting place in Ohio. I had gone there to visit family and to place her in the cemetery.

Thanks for the prayers Kerstin!

Praying that God's richest blessings shower on you and yours too!

Whether or not neuropathy is permanent or not is a question which has not been answered definitively. Some say it is something which can be stopped eventually, others say it is something which can be stopped unless it has progressed too far, and others say that it cannot be stopped once it starts.

I have the burning neuropathy in my knees through my feet and toes. It makes walking painful, and I am looking for ways to stop the burning. I haven't found anything which works for me yet.

I have the tingling neuropathy in my arms from elbows to fingertips. It is annoying, but can live with it if need be. I also have it in my groin area, and it affects my private parts. So when I was married to my Jem I had ED as a result. She also had neuropathy in her private area which cut down on her sensitivity and enjoyment. But we made do other ways.
