Aching in legs in diabetic patient with good sugar control
Patient : My husband was diagnosed with diabetes in July 2011. His blood sugar is fairly well controlled on a combination of Metformin and Actos. The problem he is having is aching legs. The pain will keep him up at night and wake him early in the morning. His doctor prescribed Neurontin and Naprosyn, which is not helping at all. He complains that even the blanket touching his feet hurts. He does have some tingling in his feet periodically, which we understand to be diabetic neuropathy. But, is the aching in his legs also neuropathy? It is driving him crazy and so far nothing has helped. What would you suggest?
