I'm new to this site and diagnosed on 2/11. I cannot say it was a surprised 3 months before my annual I had a feeling as my A1C number kept creeping up yearly and I have it on both sides of my family.
I am on Metoformin and as of Sat. my left foot is swollen. From my foot to my ankle. I'm been dealing with it but today when I got up I could not put pressure on it for 5 mins. Then I hobbled into work an hour later with a 10 min walk from the bus stop.
Besides the swelling this morning, for several months I've been dealing with burning in my foot. I told her (dr.) about it and she said that neuropathy is doubtful as I was just diagnosed. Well she gave me sciatia pain pills but they are not working. I hobbled down the street like a 95 year old woman with swelling and burning in my foot.. I'm usually up-beat and try to not get upset but today I just want to go into the bathroom and cry over this. I have a call into her.
Thank you for listening as I'm all new to this and it's just over-whelming.
As my wonderful Aunt use to say This too shall pass
