If caught early, it usually can be reversed by controlling BG, but never a guarantee. Have you had a recent EMG/Nerve Conduction Study?

Could it be something else that is causing this? Usually, at lest for me, as my numbers are better and I am more active my feet feel better. However, it is a progressive disease, and that could be it.

There is a post on "foot tapping" and I have been doing this for a few days and it seems to at least allow me to sleep without the twitching. You may want to try it. Won't hurt.

Wow…What do your doctors have to say about this?
Are you showing any signs of improvement?
