... fingers, arms and legs as the paraesthesia and limb falling asleep sensations to decreased feeling in said areas in addition to the aforementioned symptoms. It has now spread to my right hip all the way down my leg. It starts out as a shock feeling in my hip which radiates down to my toes. Then it feels like a charlie horse that will not release. It isnt constant, just when I move. I have considered getting a cane to assist me in walking :S

My question is this: what can I do to relieve the pain? Preferably not with painkillers. Is neuropathy reversible? (my dr told me no but I think that was just a scare tactic to get me to take better care/control of my diabetes)
