I am in so much pain. My diabetic neuropathy has my feet feeling like it's on fire. Is anyone familiar with build up under the toe nail? I tried to clean it myself but it hurt, so I stopped so I can just have the podiatrist do it. Any suggestions?

        @health1 I'm working on lowering my blood sugar as well so that I'm able to get a cortisone shot to help with pain. I'm thinking of trying cannabis gummies.

          @AshleeSVU I recommend the indica cannabis strain for pain. It helped me recover from my radical nephrectomy without opiate pain pills. It’s a brutal cycle because pain spikes blood sugar and high blood sugar triggers inflammation. I hope you can relieve the pain and it helps to manage the sugars. The brands of gummies available vary by state but the key is to find a brand that uses live resin. If they use terpines it’s less likely to provide as effective pain relief (but will get you high).

      As far as the buildup, are you able to soak your feet in a warm water bath? That will help loosen things up then you should be able to clean it up a bit easier

        @Bloodyangel yes, it hurts even when I wash them. That's why I'm waiting to go to my podiatrist. Everything hurts.

      I'm so sorry you're having so much pain. I absolutely understand, it hurts so bad when I get flair ups like that!

        @Bloodyangel it does, it's painful and so hard to function. It's painful to do daily task.

      Mines feel like a block of ice and the shocking is so frustrating. I know how you feel

        @Dianaeliz I'm sorry I hope it gets better.
