Here is an article published by medivizor. It is: "Is your lower limb pain related to nerve injury?".
Sensory distal polyneuropathy is a common complication of diabetes, affecting about 50% of patients. It involves degeneration of the peripheral nerves in the toes and feet, leading to slowly progressive or static toe and foot numbness, burning, a prickling sensation in the toes and feet and absent Achilles tendon reflexes with or without neuropathic pain (pain resulting from injury to the nervous system). It may have severe complications, including foot ulcers, amputation and chronic pain.
The authors in this research paper estimated the prevalence of chronic pain with neuropathic (nerve-related) characteristics in diabetic patients. The authors further declared that chronic pain with neuropathic characteristics concerns 1 in 5 diabetic patients, has a significant impact on quality of life and is not adequately managed.
