Nerve pain caused by diabetes, known as diabetic peripheral neuropathy, can be severe, constant, and hard to treat. It may start as a tingling feeling, followed by numbness and pain. But there are two key points that everyone with diabetes and peripheral neuropathy should know:
Controlling your blood sugar can keep the pain from getting worse and improve your health.
Medications can help relieve nerve pain, make you more comfortable, and improve your quality of life.
