How high are your blood sugars running? Excessive urination and the night sweats you mention are signs of high blood sugar and large swings in blood glucose levels. I had symptoms like that when my sugars were running in the 400's. As soon as I got my levels down to a more normal range (100 and under), the symptoms stopped altogether.
Your symptoms might get better if you establish tighter control of your blood sugar levels. Following a lower carb diet and increasing your exercise level are the two best ways to do this. The book by Dr. Bernstein that is referenced frequently here has a whole section about the effects of diet and exercise on neuropathy and other diabetes complications.
In response to the high bs levels being responsible for the night sweats and urination, yes it seemed like the perfect reason, as a seasoned diabetic I looked there first. My AC1 is awsome 6.1! Best it has been in 10 years and my daily levels start in the 90's in the am and peak in the low 200's after eating. No cause for these reactions.
My current Dr. I believe is starting to think I want to take pain pills even though I take only what I need to be able to walk and function. I have only been on vicoden for 1 1/2 months and take less than the allowed perscription amount. I think he is going to stop giving me the script and is telling me to take advil. Advil doesn't even touch the pain. I am a business owner and work 10 to 12 hours a day. I have five kids and need to work to support my family. I am only 38 years old. I don't know what to do. My wife who is in the medical field says some Dr's are very stingy with pain meds and some feel you should have access to what you need. She wants me to changs Dr's. Any thoughts? Ceebee, I am on neurotin, if I spelled that right, the pharmisist told me that the dose I am on will probably need to be incressed and until I am on the right dose I should not be afraid to use the pain pills. I am just not sure what to do. When I wake in the morning I take 20mil of vicotin and have to lay in bed for 30 min. til it kicks in before I can walk, it feels like my bones are glass and like they are shatering. I am 6'-5" and weigh 265 lbs. that is alot of mass when it feels like you are walking on broken glass. I just want to feel better, I am afraid that I won't be able to do my job soon. Now I feel like I am complaining to much, but I am loseing hope. I am glad I found you people, I feel a little less alone in this now.
Thanks CEEBEE, I'll give it a try and let you know if it works.
