Hi all, I am new to the board. My husband was diagnosed recently (January 2011) with Type 1. He is 28 and, before his diagnosis, a very healthy man. This has been quite a shock and adjustment for both of us. He has been able to get his blood sugars relatively regulated but he is suffering from pretty severe peripheral neuropathy in his feet. His endo first tried neuroton (sp?) and that was not effective nor was Cymbalta. He is now taking Lyrica. However, no matter the dosage, he is still in significant pain. His endo has made him an appointment with a neurologist, but we could not get in until next month. He hardly sleeps because he is up all night in pain (he says his feet just feel like they are burning all the time). Some days the Lyrica seems to work, but night time is always terrible- no matter how great the day has been. He has also been using the over-the-counter cream (can't remember the name) 4-5 times a day. I know that the pain will lessen with more time of regulated blood sugars. But I was curious if anyone has any other advice, assistance, ideas that work. I feel so bad that I cannot do anything else to ease the pain and he is really struggling right now- really any words of advice or help is welcomed! Thanks!
