Hara, two things immediately come to mind; a good neurologist will perform the necessary tests, and yes, it hurts, before diagnosing you with neuropathy in your feet and ankles...I know...been there, doing that, and no mine isn't related to diabetes. I also use the Voltaren gel on my knees, and for the most part it helps some. Also, I agree with your decision to tell them that as far as your medications go only your PPO can determine any type of change.
