Just wanted to welcome you, @dgk53590, and also @stephania157, to Mayo Clinic Connect.

That sounds very uncomfortable to be feeling like you are walking on rocks, @stephania157. Ouch. Something you may want to take a look at is the Complications section in this Mayo Clinic information on Type I diabetes, to see if any of this sounds like what you are experiencing. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/type-1-diabetes/symptoms-causes/syc-20353011

Hoping maybe @dgk53590 or @devanab5 may have some thoughts on this walking on rocks sensation? I also thought that perhaps @johnbishop may have some insights.

@stephania157 – when were you diagnosed with Type I diabetes?

@dgk53590 and @stephania157 , I would like to add my welcome to Connect along with Lisa @lisalucier and others. Diabetic neuropathy can cause numbness and tingling in the feet along with pain. I'm not sure about the feeling like you are walking on rocks. I did find some information on Mayo Clinic's website that may help point you in the right direction, both mention the feeling of walking on pebbles:

Morton's neuroma:

Metatarsalgia

It is important when you have diabetes to take good care of your feet. You might find the following discussion on Connect helpful also:

@dgk53590 and @stephania157 have you had a chance to talk to your doctor about the pain in your feet?
