Jumping Legs Syndrome/ diabetic neuropathy

Hi all

does anybody have this problem??
i am a type 2 diabetes sufferer who is taking insulin (novomix 30) metaphormin and rouvastatin
the problem i am having is the pains in my legs and feet and to be honest it kills me at times i go to bed at night and my wife ends up black and blue in the morning as i have kicked her that many times lol
i have been given Amitriptyline and these did not work i have taken them for over two months
i have just been given a different drug called Gabapentin and will see if this works but yet again they will take at least three weeks to get into my system starting with one tablet a day for the first week then two tablets for the second and then three for the third bearing in mind these tablets can make you drowsy i am at a loose end to be honest as the pain in my legs and feet seems to be getting worse to the extent of at times i am feeling like i cant walk or move anywhere as my legs are in such pain
i was wondering if anyone has any advice for me or some sort of solution or even if someone is having simular symptoms

many thanks
