My mom has type 2 diabetes and is having severe skin pain throughout her entire body!...she tries her best to explain everyone including doctors that it feels of random shooting pain, itching, severe dryness of the skin (even after putting on lotion) and even tingling sensations from her neck down....the doctors so far have not suggested any helpful or meaningful information for us!...Please if anyone has any idea or helpful hints it would be very much appreciated...

Thank you.

  • Has she seen a neurologist? Have any tests been done? There must be something that could help, maybe medication? It seems strange no one has offered anything. If it were me I would ask for referral to a neurologist ASAP. It's not fair to suffer that way. I have friends who have had really good luck (not with your mom's specific problem) with accupuncture. It sure couldn't hurt to try. Best of luck for your mom!
