Hi all,

 

I would very much appreciate prayer for the onset of sudden neuropathy in both of my feet.  I believe this is caused by a recent diagnosis of diabetes.  My feet feel numb and tingly and get very cold and almost feel like they are burning at times. 

 

I have some lab tests tomorrow which could shed light if anything else is wrong.  I have been eating very good since my diagnosis in late January and have lost 22 lbs with plenty of more to go. I am an intense worrier and ask that you not only pray for relief and healing but also my anxiety in dealing with my health.

 

Thanks and God Bless.

 

Jerry

Praying.

Casting all your cares on Him, for He careth for you.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

May you know both the peace of God with respect to your health, & relief & healing from specific suffering.

 

You say you have been eating "very good" & have lost a lot of weight. I have been diagnosed type 2 D since 2000. I changed my diet to high complex carb as recommended by the health professionals. In 7 years the peripheral neuropathy became crippling. I then changed to a low carb diet - cutting out ALL the obvious carbs. In 3 months I was out of pain & other health concerns improved. 6 years of low carb I am fit & well with no diabetes complications. Hope that helps.

Excellent advice-low/no carb and high proteins!

May God bless you all for your edifying prayers. Covenanter- Low carb is exactly what I am on right now and glory to God this morning I am down another 2 pounds making it 24 total pounds lost.  You have given me great hope and peace about my situation and will trust in the Lord for healing and sustainment. 

 

Praise His name!

Praying for you also.

I also have neuropathy in both feet, not from diabetes though. They're freezing all the time! Two pairs of wool socks still not warm I battle it year round. God bless you!

Thanks again for everyone's prayers! I still have some mild tingling in both of my feet but yesterday about 2:00 pm CST I was standing in the kitchen and felt a warming coming over my feet and much of the pain and burning gone.  Praise God! :amen: Its definitely improved though and am grateful for the prayers and the Lord's healing hands. Miss Daisy- just curious if not from diabetes, what is the source of your neuropathy?

jebarr, 20 years as a nurse on my feet for 8+ hours a day and runner in my younger days. Tarsal tunnel syndrome (like carpal tunnel only in your feet), plantar fasciitis, multiple surgeries trying to correct it with no success.

Some people have relief from medication for nerve pain but I wasn't one of them, tried them all. Done everything possible. Been to Mayo's and Loyola in Chicago.

Glad yours are feeling a little warmth!

I think I have plantar fasciitis, have for several years now. Special insoles helped greatly but starting just this past Monday both heals have been hurting badly, especially after I've laid down or been sitting for awhile; then it's very difficult to stand or walk. Once I move around a bit and get my shoes back on that helps but the pain is still there.

I'm so sorry to hear that so many OB members have health issues.  I have Rheumatoid Arthritis in my hands, knees, and feet.  Braggs Vinegar works to diminish some of the pain.  I didn't realize how bad my knees were until we visited our friends in South Eastern Ohio.  They have a rather large house and when we visit we are in the guest room.  I noticed my knees were more sore, than usual, as I was climbing the stairs.  I live in a ranch house, so I can't tell without any stairs to climb.  My feet are the worse.  RA is hereditary.  My grandmother and my mom both had it.  I don't mind getting older, but the body sure does wear down.

Thanks for sharing Miss Daisy. My pain is still there especially when I walk a lot but I did seem to get more feeling in them that day.  It makes it hard to exercise much to go along with my diet but I do my best. I am so sorry that you have not found relief for your pain.  I will keep you in my prayers.  Hopefully you live in a warmer climate as this winter has been a rough one for most of us.  God Bless.
