Please help with sleep problems

My husband has severe neuropathy in his feet due to diabetes. He take 2 Gabapentin before bed and he still can't get to sleep until midnight. Then he is awake every hour. Any ideas on what he needs to do? I am very worried about him. He doesn't want to see his PC because of Covid 19. Thank you for your help.

@jmb73, Sorry to hear your husband is having trouble sleeping due to the neuropathy pain in his feet. Is his diabetes under control? Here is an article that you may find helpful.

Is it possible to reverse diabetic neuropathy?: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/317923

Would it help to call the doctor's office or medical facility and ask them what precautions they are taking for patient appointments with the current COVID-19 situation, then share it with your husband to hopefully alleviate his concern? I've had several appointments now at Mayo Clinic and they really go the extra mile in protecting their patients and employees. Everyone must wear a mask and be screened for COVID-19 by taking their temperature and asking related questions.
