I there any one out there having nerve pain in their stumps, i have found out that i am a type 3 diabetic and have nerve pain in both stumps am a bilateral BKA, what it feel like it your are getting poked by a bunch of pins and needles and all the time your stump also feels numb, then it goes to a pain that is like getting hit with a lighting bolt, Is there any one out there that this is happening to them.

There's a new drug designed specifically for that type of pain. It's called Lyrica. I tried it and it works. While it's prescribed for three times per day, I only used it "As Needed" when things acted up and it worked well like that as well.

Mine is just 465. I don'y know why I bother to test or take Insulin. Sometimes it just goes crazy and for no reason. I eat the same thing and do the same things every day. I'm told consistency is the key to control butit doesn't seem to work for me. I feel it's because of my blood disorder.

Just a note Lyrica has been out for a while and it s used for nerve pain. There also are side effects that can come right away or after years of use, some seizure meds like Kepra are also used for nerve pain.
