My peripheral neuritis is from my diabetes. Sometimes the neuropathy in my feet is so bad that I can hardly walk. Other times it just feels like my feet have gone to sleep and they feel numb and tingly.
Either way, having diabetic peripheral neuropathy is not fun, and another complication of this awful disease.
Since neuropathy affects the nerves throughout your whole body, you can imagine how this might feel if you whole body was affected at the same time.
I have to use medications to keep my glucose levels under control. Since I began having the neuropathy symptoms, my doctor also prescribed an antidepressant to help with these symptoms.
I don't quite understand how something like an antidepressant can help with the pain of neuropathy, but it works for me, and I feel much better since I started taking it.
