Our expert says:
It is difficult to advise without seeing the patient but the sore feet may be due to neuropathy caused by the diabetes. This is usually a nerve pain, so normal painkillers don't work well. We use anti-depressants or anti-epileptic medication for that kind of pain ( it works on the pain centre in the brain - I know it sounds funny but it works) He will need a prescription from his GP for it.
