Hi! I had polio when I was 18 mths old. Have been a survivor for 62 year and now have post polio syndrome. I have gastroparesis and neuropathy. Not from my diabetis which I have only had for 17mths. My bs are mostly in the 102 to 118. My doctor says my neuropathy symptoms are not from diabetes. From reading posts most can control the burning and tingling by getting their bs in control. I feel lost because my symptoms are not controlled that way. I take neuratin to help but if I'm off one minute I hurt for a long time. As for the gastroparesis (paralized stomach) it also is caused from polio and not the diabetes. I'm sick 24/7 and on bad days have liquid meals through the g-tube. I guess I'm just feeling not in the group. As I haven't found anyone else on this site that is fight both these battles. If I'm wrong please let me know so I can talk to them as most days I feel alone.
Sorry for feeling sorry for myself.
