Not enough insulin: If you have true type 1 dm, you need rapid acting Insulin before each meal in addition to the nightly lantus (insulin glargine). If you have type 2 diabetes, which is more likely if you've significantly overweight, you need meal time Insulin and/or other medication -- in either case, you need to be following a diet and exercise regimen as well as monitoring, prevention, etc.

They could be : Burning from diabetic neuropathy or the fact the ankles swell and this induces a tarsal tunnel syndrome.....you need to try and minimize that swelling...speak to your doc about possible diuretics or compressive socks...

Even if the tooth had rct, i often numb the patient as getting a perfect impression is essential and sometimes involves slight discomfort. Some patients are fine w\o an injection or ok with sweet air.

How long after root canal will i be able to get a crown?

How long after root canal will i be able to get a crown?

Immediatelyl: Generally, if everything went well with the root canal therapy it would be a good idea to start immediately with the fabrication of a crown. Only when the prognosis might be guarded due to a number of reasons, would it be wise to make sure the rct is successful prior to making a crown for the tooth (just in case the rct fails). Discuss this with your own dentist.

Is it okay to wait for 3 months to get a crown after root canal?

Is it okay to wait for 3 months to get a crown after root canal?

Many factors: A great deal depends on the tooth itself, how it was left, and several other factors. The principal problem is the other teeth around and opposing the root canal tooth. They may shift into the space left by the loss of tooth structure. If it is a front tooth or if the tooth is largely intact, and there is a long term (hard) temporary, you should be OK. If not get a temporary crown.
