Have you spoken with your doctor? My neuropathy was worse at night. Once I got my blood sugar under control, the problem cleared up. Now it only acts up when it is high.

To control your blood sugar look at the amount of carbs you are eating per meal. You may want to ask your doctor how many you can have. You have to count every carb that you eat.

To control your blood sugars, try limiting the amount of carbs you're eating per meal, make sure to take your medications (if you're on any) and make sure to get plenty of exercise. Exercising will also help with the neuropathy pain. If it gets too bad, then you can get medication that will help to relieve some of the pain. I had severe neuropathy pain for years. I've been on a couple of different medications for it. First, I was on carbamazepine for awhile, then I was switched to gabapentin. Carbamazepine is primarily used to control epilepsy seizures, but it will work to suppress nerve sensations. Gabapentin is also an epilepsy medication, works similar to carbamazepine. Both meds have their share of side effects, but I've found them relatively mild. Most common is drowsiness. Talk to your doctor about them and which, if maybe even another med, will work for you.

Try eliminating gluten from your diet. There are good gluten free websites online that offer good support and info on taking this important step.

People with autoimmune disease are healing from psoriasis say and many other health issues just by eliminating gluten. I am doing that myself and i feel so much better.

This takes time so you have to be patient. It is well worth it to improve my quality of life.

wow! This is one I have not heard…at least not this extremely. I will get leg cramps. They keep me awake. I have to get up and walk them out. It seems to be worse for me in the cold weather than now. There are home remedies…pickle juice is one of them! I have been having a small drink of that before bed. (It really is not bad!) I don't know…are you under a doctor's care?
