Hi. I'm also a new member to this group. I've been reading some of the posts on this site-very informative. I've been told by my general doctor that diabetes can cause pain thru out the body if sugar is out of control. Has anyone else heard of that? I have a lot of pain issues to begin with (like arthritis,herniated disks,fibro mialgia, stenosis,carpal tunnel etc). I did notice that my pain seemed to get worse awhile back, got blood test & MRI & it showed that my blood sugar was thru the roof (A1C is 11.2) But has anyone gotten worse pain because of this kind of thing? I am now on meds for this but I'm considerating getting off my narcotic meds for pain (I cant stand how I feel on them & the side affects make me crazy) but does diabetes pain get better eventually? I probably sound nutty but I do feel mixed up. Just never associated diabetes with full blown pain.
