Diabetic neuropathy is a condition in which nerves are damaged by diabetes.
Diabetes is an autoimmune disease that affects the way the body processes sugar. It can cause damage to blood vessels, especially in the feet. This type of damage can lead to symptoms like tingling, numbness, and pain in the feet.
Diabetic Neuropathy often starts with foot pain. It affects the nerves in the body and can cause pain in the hands, feet, legs and arms.
Many refer to the pain in the following manner:
Tingling - feet are tingling, the sensation of pins and needles in the feet
Pain or increased sensitivity in the feet - burning, stabbing pain, and sometimes sensitive to the touch. Some experience pain with wearing socks, shoes or contact with bedsheets.
Numbness or weakness - unsteady when walking, feeling as though their feet are nonexistent.
