What does diabetic neuropathy in the feet and toes feel like? Does taking prescription metanx help? . Been type-1 for 30+ years
Variable symptoms. Typical is numbness, tingling, coldness, or burning, and variation of pain. Foot weakness may be present. If you take metformin, might check for b-12 deficiency, in addition. Metanx is fda approved and has been shown to improve nerve fibre density and reduce symptoms, but could take 6-12 months, and best to take twice daily.
Metanx may help. Depending on the affected nerves, symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can range from a numbness and tingling sensation, possibly a burning sensation, to an uncomfortable painful sensation of the extremities. Get evaluated by a professional to determine the exact cause of the neuropathy in order to get the appropriate treatment.
See a Podiatrist. Typically patients complain of burning pain in feet and toes. Some patients present with no feeling at all. I recommend you find a local podiatrist who has experience caring for diabetics.
