Last summer I had shingles and since then occasional nerve pain in different places. Is there any connection to diabetes type 2

my husband has type 2. 3 years ago he was in a tractor accident and every since has had nerve pain in his legs that won't heal. I've been reading up and found that with diabetes comes neropathy (?) in various forms. One is that diabetes attaches the nerves, expecially the long ones in the legs. I never imagined it could affect so may different body parts!

I don't think there is any connection. You are doing well with your bs and eventually you will be able to get it lower with hard work of carb counting and finding good substitutes like using spaghetti squash for pasta. Keep up the good work your A1C will show you your average over 3 - 4 months, That is a really good indicator how things are going for you.

Thank you. I found out I have type 2 diabetes about 7 months ago right after a bout with shingles. I check my BS everyday and stay in the range of 111 - 124. Can't seem to get below 111 but I'm trying.
