hi all,i’m 4 and 1/2 months into my diagnosis…i’m a 32 year old male…i was diagnosed in the ICU after having several major generalized seizures,i had a bg of 700 and was in ketoacidosis and my A1C was 14.7
my first A1C post-diagnosis was 7.2…i take 15 units Lantus in the evening and about 10-12 units of novolog daily both by syringe…i feel i have decent control of my diet and insulin regiment
only a week or two out of the hospital i started experiencing severe muscle and joint pain,i feel like i run marathons in hail storms kind of pain.this has been almost constant for months…also soon after diagnosis i started having numbness in my feet this turned into pain in feet legs and groin,severe burning and stabbing feelings CONSTANTLY…
my neurologist has diagnosed me with Peripheral Neuropathy…he did an EMG and has me goin to the lab for 10 panels…B6,B12 some others along with my next A1C and C-Pep
both my Neurologist and Endo are being very evasive when it comes to why i’m having these complications and what i can do about it beside control my bg…is this my body adjusting to insulin thereapy? is this how it feels when your pancreas is honeymooning? is it going to hurt like this forever?
i need to sleep again some day…has anyone gone through this? does everyone go through this? any help would be wonderful,thank you.
