Hi orpy, same thing happened to me and from what I understand your nerves are damaged slowly without you realizing it when you have diabetes. That's why they say you must pay special attention to your feet cause they could be injured with out you even realizing it. When you sort of get you D under control like it seems you have been, your nerve endings are repairing themselves and thus the discomfort. Of coarse YMMV. It SEEMS LIKE YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK. Good job and keep up the good work.
