I've had this condition for ten years now. I have been totally disabled due to severe chronic nerve pain. I have at least once been denied a service through Medicare because I am not also diabetic. Why should diabetic PN be treated differently than a normal PN? Mine is "Idiopathic"
I was 45 years old when diagnosed. I haven't been able to find any difference.
The service I was denied was a special shoe I need to wear, I was told medicare would only pay if I had diabetic PN...
