The most common pains that almost all long term diabetes patients suffer is leg pains aka nerve pains or neuropathy pains even when taking meds. Overtime, no oral meds can stop that nerve pains which can only be stopped when the patients blood sugar reading are ALWAYS LESS than 140 mg/dl AT ALL TIMES!.
I was there and done that, now the pains is gone.
I don't know if your pains is nerve pains though. Good luck.

I'm not diabetic but I have severe Neuropathy. I am 43. In 02 had hyst .. In 06 I had 2 strokes.. I have severe numbness and pain in my feet and my calves feel like they are always swollen and hard. But to touch they are not.. Just feels that way.. My hands and fingers feel burnt and to touch they feel numb in my fingertips. My fingers also are swollen ... I have been to the specialists who just say nothing and send me to someone else. No one canjust tell me who can honestly fix this. I know this can't be how I have to live. The pain meds just make me sleep. Because of everything else Im on.When I wake up I feel worse.. When it rains I feel even worse... I have no balance . Can't be on my feet for more then 10 -15 min. I have degenerative discs. Low potassium. High blood pressure and I've been in a wheelchair for three or four years.. I have no life. I never leave the house. I just want a plan to fix me. Where do I go what to do. Please someone help me... Thank you for letting me vent. .. Sorry for the spelling..
