The pain and tingling the doctor told me that its neuropathy and for the pain in my legs use the diabetic socks and they do work good for me. I use rice bags in the microwave for the tingling in my hands. But i understand not everything works for everyone. But there is a few things that might help. Hope you find what works for you.

I use my rice bag (in the winter) to warm the foot of my bed. It helps so much for me and relaxes my feet so I can sleep. Another thing I do is use a balm on the souls of my feet. That also helps relax them. I am trying to avoid medications as long as I can to treat it, but if you need it, talk to your doctor about what to do.

I too notice, on occassion, at night when I sit down to relax, my one leg aches and I usually take a couple tylenol to try to ease it down. Is this similar, no problems with hands and arms.
