Doctor

A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
It seems you have developed diabetic neuropathy as a complication of diabetes.
I advise you to get a Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) testing for the confirmation.
The most important treatment strategy is well controlled of your diabetes.
Once your diagnosis is confirmed by NCV, you will be prescribed by your doctor a combination of Pregabalin and Methylcobalamine. This combination will help you a lot.
I hope it helps.
If you have any further query, please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
