Hi, I suffer with Diabetic neuropathy in both feet. On "good days" my feet are numb, no feeling, but most of the time they feel as though I`m walking on open sores/cuts. I was given Gabapentin ( an Epilepsy drug) to help with this, for some reason it "blocks" pain signals to a certain extent. I take a double dose at night to combat the fiery pains that seem to predominate at that time. I try not to let the pain stop me from walking in nature with my dog, it would be all too easy to give in though..... I`d love an uninterrupted nights sleep but don`t want an opiate to knock me out, tried that, felt like a zombie. Anyone out there coping with this?
