I really felt great after reading it. over 4 years ago, m_robison said... I was diagnosed with type II diabetes a few years ago. I am 59 years old and have had a heart attack, then a couple years later quadruple bypass surgery and then last year a stroke that left permanent vision damage. High blood sugar left unattended is responsible for the excruciating pain in my feet that constantly makes my feet feel as if they are burning. then there is also periodic stabbing pains and shooting pains in my feet, but the burning sensation is always there. I was taking neurontin to ease the pain of the nerve damage that has been done. three years later, I quit taking it. it does no good at all. I sometimes wish I could just ask for double amputation to stop the pain. still suffering. Out of all the things that I have endured in my life, by far, type II diabetes is the worst. almost 5 years ago, sherryjp said... I'm glad I found your site....I'm 58 years old and unfortunately have been extremely ill for 5 years. Finally we got to most of the root of my problem which was endometrosis that had taken over my pelvic organs and later other internal organs. I've had 4 surgeries in the last 9 months. I've also been plagued with multiple infections. At this time I'm going through a severe sinus infection and shingles. It was only 2 mo ago that my PA told me I was type 2 prescribed formmentin, but that was all the info he gave me. I've been keeping a close eye on my blood sugar with a glucose meter. I found your site when my blood sugar soared to 267. Scared me to death.. It's a weekend and I didn't want to go to the emergency room.
