Its like when ur feet fall asleeo but it hurts like pins and needles r being shoved in there instead of falling asleep feet.I have diabetes too. For over 20yrs but never had nerve pain with it and i keep my sugars in control. I dont know which doctor to talk to lol.

I have constant pain in my feet like you, sometimes shooting into my cloves and even in groin area. I use Vicodin when it is awful and also have script for baclofen but don't like to take either 1 too frequently. I would def talk with your neuro. I think very common with ms

Extreme foot/toe pain was one of my first MS symptom, I saw my GP numerous times about the pain because it would be so bad at night that I was unable to sleep. She prescribed Neurontin, this helped a lot. After a couple of years it stopped working well (I had to keep increasing the dosage and it was causing fatigue), I asked about Lyrica and I like it much better. Perhaps you could ask about Lyrica, I know it is also used to treat diabetic neuropathy.

I have a lot of problems with pain and spasms in my legs and feet. Meds help some (lyrica, cymbalta, mirapex). Contrary to the usual advice for MSers, the thing that helps me the most is sitting in the hot tub for just 15min or so right before I go to bed. Eases the pain and spasms and makes me really tired so I can sleep. I know of a few others that are also helped by the hot tub, but it isn't for everyone.

Savella helps with the pain in your feet. Or at least it does for me.
