Hi @margaretob, It sounds like you might be having a bad day and are hurting some. I've seen that you have posted in other neuropathy discussions. Your profile description mentions you have diabetes which I'm guessing may be the cause of your neuropathy and pain in the feet and legs. I think you might find these discussions helpful:

The Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy lists some treatments for diabetic neuropathy that you may not have thought about here – https://www.foundationforpn.org/causes/diabetic-peripheral-neuropathy/

How are you doing with your diabetes? Have you made any lifestyle changes to see if they might help?


Hi @margaretob, dealing with multiple conditions is tough. How are you doing today?


just had pain to the point could not open my mouth so it was just facial pai n but stopped right away.


Taking magnesium has eliminated my cramps — 400 mg/day. Amazing. I’ve shared that info with two others and their craps went away, too.
