    I have just been diagnosised with neuropathy of the feet and I'm experiancing numbness and tingling of the toes and upper feet, my legs are week and I occasionally get these killer cramps on the upper part of the foot when I'm sleeping. The pain is so sever that when they finally ease I'm left shaking and feeling nausous. I have not been diagnosised with diabiates but I do have two hurniated discs in my lower back. I'm not sure if the discs is what caused the neuropathy or the weekness in the legs. I'm wondering if this will get any worse. Could I become paralized and be confined to a wheelchair?

    You are asking questions which can only be answered by first obtaining a complete diagnosis. Speak with the doctor who made the diagnosis of neuropathy, and if not already under the care of a specialist, as your doctor about seeing a neruologist, or neurosurgeon.
  3. My mother is diabetic and suffers with neuropathy. She has debilitating leg cramps that constantly wake her at night and she also suffers with nausea as an after effect as well. The meds that are prescribed to her do nothing for her so she has started taking OTC leg cramp meds she found at Walmart. They offer temporary relief but only after the onset of said cramps.
