Diabetic Neuropathy is a condition when the nerves become damaged from diabetes.
Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy is when the hands, legs and feet are affected and is the one of the most common causes of nerve pain in the feet.
Diabetics frequently develop neuropathy because high blood sugars damage nerves. Neuropathy is typically most painful at night and when at rest, but then gets better with physical activity.
Symptoms of Neuropathy Include:
- Tingling or feeling of pins and needles in the feet.
- Pain or discomfort in feet or legs.
- Burning sensation in your feet or "hot feet".
- Numbness or decreased sensation in the feet.
If you are diabetic or have pain or discomfort in your legs or feet schedule an appointment with an experienced podiatrist.
