According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, about 30 percent of patients with diabetes experience diabetic peripheral neuropathy, a dysfunction of the nerves that produces a burning, tingling, or aching pain that worsens at night. Diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain disrupts sleep quality, mood, and the ability to perform daily activities. It can also put diabetics at risk for foot ulceration. The pain typically affects the feet and hands, but other symptoms may include:

  • Muscle weakness
  • Uncontrollable or jerky body movements
  • Vision or hearing issues
  • Loss of memory
  • Disorientation

If you are experiencing this type of nerve pain, schedule an appointment with one of our pain management doctors at Pain Zero in Central Ohio to help relieve your pain.

Many types of foot and leg pain, weakness, and sensation variations can be caused by peripheral neuropathy, which also affects temperature, pain, muscle contractions, and movement. To determine a proper diagnosis, our pain care specialists at Pain Zero will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your medical history, symptoms, and medication history, as well as order a series of diagnostic exams that will help provide the most appropriate personalized treatment for your condition.

The most common treatments for this type of neuropathy include pain medication, steroid injections, and nerve blocks. With new advances in technology, we can offer procedures to target the nerves directly through ablation or stimulation interventions.

I've been coming here for 4 months now after trying to manage my back pain issues with every other treatment and medicine that my previous specialists offered from May 2022 until Nov 2023. In these 4 months I've had more improvement in mobility and pain relief than i did in all of 2022 and 2023. I've also seen a significant weight loss from being able to move better, cook my own food, and work again. Pain Zero also offer medicine when needed between procedures and more importantly they listen to the issues you're having and provide safe and effective pain relief. I wish I would have came here 2 years ago when my issues first started, but I'm thankful to have found a great doctor and pain management center now. Why I would suggest Pain Zero over a place that rhymes with Northo Oro for spine and neck issues through my personal experience. (Dr. C and his orthopedic team at "Northo Oro" are awesome!) I feel Dr Taif at Pain Zero listened to my issues and concerns with the pain and offered options he felt was best for me. I was very hesitant after many short lived & underwhelming procedures at the other places. Pain Zero offers all the same out patient surgical procedures as the bigger ortho centers. The difference in that is the big centers have around 30 people on staff and PZ has about 5. So the costs of the procedures are far less and you don't have an audience in the room either like the other place.

What is Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy?

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy refers to nerve damage caused by diabetes, primarily affecting the nerves in your legs and feet. It often leads to numbness, pain, or weakness in the affected areas, and is a common complication of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

What are the symptoms of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy?

Symptoms of this condition can vary from person to person. Common signs include a tingling or burning sensation, sensitivity to touch, muscle weakness, and serious pain. These symptoms are often more pronounced during the night.

How is Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy treated?

While there's no cure, the treatment focuses on managing symptoms and slowing progression of the disease. This often includes controlling blood sugar levels, taking medications for pain relief, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgical interventions. Regular check-ups are crucial for early detection and management.
