What do I have ??- Peripheral Neuropathy


My sister is in great pain with her feet. She has had her blood check for Diabetes her count is 109, just regular (not 4 hr. test). She had a CRP test for Rheumatoid Arthritis, her count was 12.9. The high is 13.9. Her doctor said neither of these things are the trouble. She is going again to her foot doctor but he called her and said she might need a Neurologist. She is in so much pain she was thinking of going to the hospital a few nights ago. Both feet are the same, they hurt all day everday. She can barely walk. They hurt even when she is in bed at night. Can someone shed some light for her. Also she is on the wonderful Secure Horizons Program so she doesn't get to go to a sundry of doctors when she wants. You have to be dying when they finally let you go. Also I forgot she does have very high Triglycerides. I think her count was 249. We read on some of the boards that Diabetes and high Triglycerides could be the problem, but then again here I am trying to do the doctors work since they are sending her to a foot doctor again. About 2 months ago he gave her two cordizone shots but of course they didn't work because she doesn't have the problems that these shots would cure.
