    Hi @1984cathy, welcome to the community. I'm sorry to hear you have been in pain and that this has impacted your sleep. Are you applying for PIP?

    Hi I have type 2 diabetes and know what you mean you should speak to your GP about it,

    I have been prescribed nerve pain medication and it has helped, please please please look after your legs and feet before its too late
