What are diabetic foot pain signs?

A:
Signs and symptoms of diabetic foot pain are often worse at night, and may include:

  • Increased sensitivity to touch — for some people, even the weight of a bedsheet can be painful
  • Loss of balance and coordination
  • Loss of reflexes, especially in the ankle
  • Muscle weakness
  • Numbness or reduced ability to feel pain or temperature changes
  • Serious foot problems, such as ulcers, infections, and bone and joint pain
  • Sharp pains or cramps
  • Tingling or burning sensation

These signs and symptoms don’t always mean you have nerve damage. But they can be a sign of another condition that requires medical care. Call your doctor for an appointment if you have the symptoms above.
