hello i'm new to this site, i went to a rheumy and they told me that its sounds as though I have periperal neuropathy. I haven't had any test done, cuz I don't have insurance or the money to do it, besides having 2 little ones that I take care of everyday. I have balls of nerves on the soul of my feet, hard for me to walk at times, then I cant turn my legs in certain directions cuz I feel my nerves pulling. Its now in my hands to my shoulders as well. I get clogged ears for no reason, and lately new symptoms, been having a vibrating like a bee in my left upper arm and now the past couple of days i've been having cold sweats....don't know if this is part of this disease

Welcome to the Forum.  I don't know if this is related to diabetic neuropathy.  Only a doctor can tell you that.  Does diabetes run in your family?  Are you overweight?  Have you ever been told that your blood sugar is high or elevated?

I have Type 2 diabetes and have neuropathy in my feel and lower legs. It's really painful. Sometimes the "tingling" and sharp pain is so painful I can barely stand it. I've taken medication but it makes me terribly sleepy. My feet are numb to the point of not being able to sense heat or cold. Have to be real careful in shower or bath. I've never had any problems with a "vibration" or "cold sweats". Of course mine is centralized in my feet. It does have the possibility of progressing to my legs, arms, etc. I know without insurance it makes things more difficult. Sometimes I use cold compresses on my feel and that helps. Hope you get along really well and find out the exact cause of these symptoms.
