    I have had neuropathy from diabetes for years before the Weg diagnosis but the Wegs made it worse. Nerve conduction tests confirm damage to both my sensory nerves and motor nerves. I initially took some meds for pain but found as the numbness progressed the pain seemed to decrease. i still have occasional twinges of stabbing pain and the other usual symptoms but the numbness in my feet is most bothersome along with loss of balance and trouble walking at times.

    I have pain at times from cramps but don't know if this has any relation to the neuropathy since many things can cause cramps.

    There are some experimental treatments for neuropathy being researched but no promise of any effective treatment on near horizon. I have been told the best thing I can do is to walk a lot and try to control my blood glucose levels.
