I have been a diabetic for a whole two months. I have had polio neurapthy in both of my feet for a long time. It effects my good leg and foot the most. The left leg barely has it.I think this is because it is paralized. I have gastroparesis of my stomach (paralized stomach). I have had this for almost 30yrs. This to is caused from polio. I don't know what to expect from the diabetis if I already have these problems. I just saw a heart doctor who ran all the tests and said my heart has no plaque build up. He said I don't expect to see you again. So that takes care of the heart for awhile. I'm in pain 24/7 and use fentanyl at 50mg and oxycoden for break through. Today I'm feeling tired and out of focus and having a pitty party. I only give myself permission for a pitty party once in awhile. Is anyone else having these problems that are caused by other health problem or polio. I feel lost in this world of
diabetics.
Also I have polio foggy brain. I can't remember puncuation or how to spell words properly. My husband is my dictionary. Anyway that how I'm feeling today.

i am pre-diabetic,or metobolic syndrome,depends on who is talking. i have had cataract surgery on both eyes and am having problems in the left one now,also have mitral valve prolaspe and polyneuropathy in my legs,feet,hands, and arms. some days i just can't think straight and even with depression meds. i feel depressed an overwhelmed at times. i understand a person having pity parties, i don't think you would be normal if you didn't. but remember tommorow is another day. maybe it will be better!

Thank You for posting. My husband is pre-diabetic. He eats the same diet that i eat. What do you do about your metabolic syndrum? I'm sorry that you are having so many problems from it. I think that that my hands are starting to have nerapathy. A little tingling in especialy the right hand. Yes I know that we have to take each day as it comes. I'm feeling better today. Thank you for your support.

my sugars don't get high enough for them to say i have type 2, but i am getting all the compilcations that go with diabetes. when i asked my doctor why , he said it was just my bad luck! i walk once a day ,when i can and i take neurontin for the polyneuropathy. your husband will have better luck than me. i was born under a black cloud, nasty business that! i do try to keep my sense of humour,but i am somewhat strange in what i find is funny! lol!!!
