Diabetic Nerve Pain

 

Diabetic nerve pain is a disease or abnormality of the nervous system, which is not curable.  Diabetic nerve pain can occur even before a Diabetes diagnosis is given.  Different nerves may be affected by this condition.  Sensory nerves are those that receive sensations, motor nerves are those that control the muscles and autonomic nerves are those that control body functions such as blood pressure, heart rate, digestion and bladder function.  Nerve Conduction Studies may be completed to determine where the nerve pain has affected the nervous system.

 

Symptoms of nerve pain depend on which nerves are affected, and the means that causes the nerve damage.  Some of the most common symptoms of nerve pain are:

 

  • Numbness

  • Tingling

  • Burning

  • Pain

  • Muscle cramps

  • Urinary and gastrointestinal issues

  • Weakness

  • Cramping in the toes, feet and/or hands

  • Feeling of pins and needles or creepy crawlers

  • Lack of coordination - feeling off balance

  • Difficulty doing certain daily living activities such as raising your arms above your head
