Type 1 Surprise
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?
