Diabetic Runners


Peripheral neuropathy (Read 250 times)

    Is anyone running with moderate to severe peripheral neuropathy of the feet?   If so, do you have any advice to give regarding foot care, shoes, running surfaces, etc.?   Mine is moderate at this point (just enough to raise my life insurance rates) but I wonder what the future holds.




    Does anyone share my predicament? 


    Does running help PN?


    Does anyone have general leg cramps, restless legs syndrome, or find you legs uncomfortable at night?

    Discipline is never an end in itself, only a means to an end. (RF)




      Yes I find that my feet/legs are restless and strained at night. I also suffer a bit during the day but it is definitely worse at night. 


      The only advice I can give is make sure you pay close attention to the condition of your feet.


      My feet are in very good condition but I still get neuropathy pain in them.
