Your symptoms sound like they are compatible with diabetic neuropathy, which is nerve damage secondary to high blood sugars over time. Treatment would consist of controlling blood sugars, in case there is temporary dysfunction. If still persisting, then there are medical treatments which are available, and can be got on prescription from your doctor. These tablets which work on the nerves can reduce pain by up to 50%.Before looking at treatment options, you need to have an assessment by your doctor for a formal diagnosis
