Hi everyone. I was diagnosed a month ago. I was having severe pain in my legs and feet since last January. My regular Dr. just kept telling me it was my tendons and nerves causing my issues, telling me to do daily stretchs.Needless to say that did nothing to help.And to add insult to injury I'm unemployed with no insurance.Thankfully my mother has a friend who is a Dr.
he took a intrest in my problem and finaly sent me for a blood test. To my surprise my gloucose level was 420.It was a hard to handle the news! Seeing my biggest fear is needles! Luckily I've been able to keep it in check with oral meds,usually between 120-130 sometimes as low as 114. I found walking twice a day and watching all my carb and sugar intake has made all the difference.I also take a variety of vitamins daily. It was'nt very easy changing my life style but I'm not going to let this beat me!
I really have one big issue the pain is still with me. I still experience the pain 4 or 5 days a week? It seems to, strangely enough is worse when my levels are the lowest? does anyone know why this is And will it ever go away?
I appreciate any help or advise anyone can give me.
