I have diabetic Neuropathy. Anyone have experience with CBD oil for diabetic neuropathy?
The pain is in the balls of my feet and toes.
It came on after a 70 kilometer walk over 4 days. Both feet at the same time and started with pins and needles..3 years later now and it’s just pain.
Raw burning sensation and worse when I walk but OK when I sleep or feet up.
It hasn’t spread but I’m desperate. Tried everything..Lyrica has too many side effects..

Hi, @manassen1 – welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. You'll notice I moved your message to this existing discussion, "CBD oil for Neuropathy." I did this so that you can connect with other members talking about this topic.

Sounds like you've tried lots of remedies for this pain and raw burning sensation that get worse when you walk, and I trust these members will have some input on whether CBD oil might help with your diabetic neuropathy.

While awaiting responses from these members, you may be interested to read this Mayo Clinic information on diabetic neuropathy https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/diabetic-neuropathy/symptoms-causes/syc-20371580.

It sounds as though you've had a specialist diagnose your diabetic neuropathy and also prescribe the pregabalin (Lyrica) that you found to have too many side effects. What did your physician suggest trying next to manage this pain?

Manessen1, What side effects did you have with Lyrica? I'm taking it and I haven't noticed any so far … I want to pay attention. I read here that some people had side effects with gabapentin too. I didn't have any with that, I got to the maximum dose as condition got worse, then neurologist changed me to Lyrica. I didn't have any problem stopping gabapentin, no 'detox' or rebound. Peggy
