A:   Hello,
Thank you for posting your query on ATD.

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. You may be having diabetic neuropathy. Treatment of it is analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. Neurotropic agents like Mecobalamine can be useful. You can take antidiabetic drugs according to your blood sugar. You can consult a Physician for your problems.
Hope your query got answered.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
