Hi and thanks for using the forum.

How have your blood sugars been?  Are they controlled?  Many diabetics have issues with neuropathy- which is nerve pain.  This may be what you are experiencing.  You need to discuss this with your doctor.  There are medications that can help with this pain, but you need to see your doctor to find out if this is indeed what you are experiencing.  In the meantime, work on your blood sugar control.  Good luck.
