Re: Diabetes and extreme toe pain
Sue, I have the same problem and recently went to a podiatrist because I was concerned that the diabetes was causing too much damage to my feet. My toes hurt all day and, by the time I went to bed at night, the pain kept me awake. The podiatrist ordered labs and checked reflexes, etc. in my feet and toes. Because most of the pain is in my big toe and next two toes, he is pretty sure I have Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, the foot equivalent of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. I'm having tests done in a few weeks to confirm. But, its something you may want to check out, as well. Are you seeing a podiatrist? Even if it is neuropathy, there are meds and treatments for the pain.
