In brief: Unfortunately, once
The nerve damage is done, there is no cure.
However, there are multiple available treatments.

In brief: Not really
Getting blood sugars in control can sometimes alleviate the neuropathic pain from diabetes.
There is no way to reverse this process though if damage has been done to the nerves. There are medications that can help relieve the pain, but they only alleviate up to 50% of the pain. The best thing a diabetic patient can do is control their blood sugars.

In brief: Have it evaluated.
If the symptoms are due to neuropathy, topical capsaicin may be helpful for some, while others may benefit with oral medications.
Watch you sugar intake, and have your vitamin b levels checked and supplemented as necessary. Consult with your physician for an appropriate plan of care.
