What do you do for diabetic foot pain?

I have severe and constant neuropathy in both of my feet. The pain at times is unbearable. What do you do to manage the pain? I want to walk and exercise, but my feet feel like they’re being burned in a fire. Other times my toes cramp real bad.

    I have to admit I had a small problem in the first week with the shoe rubbing against the tendon in the back of my leg. I developed quite the blister 🙁 After the shoe stretched a bit, all was good. The Chicane is so comfortable to wear and that’s a good thing because I work on a cement floors and do a lot of standing and walking. orthofeet shoes are a godsend in my opinion.

    I don’t know about the cramping of the toes but I do have loss feeling in places of feet and also the burning. You might want to talk to your doctor about that and see what they would prescribe for you to take. Mine put me on Lyrica and it has helped me but your doctor might want to put you on something else. Also your doctor might refer you to a specialist on the cramping. That would be the individual I’d be checking with on what’s going on.
