Thank you for answering those questions. Because you are diabetic, there is a high probability that you are experiencing symptoms of peripheral neuropathy and/or poor vascular circulation. These conditions are common in people with diabetes.
The other condition that cause or aggravate these symptoms is a Vitamin B deficiency especially B12 and folate. Making sure you are getting plenty of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, dairy and fortified cereals in your diet will help this. Or, if you prefer, supplements will also help.
You should let your doctor know you are having these problems. Strict control of your blood sugars can prevent further damage, but may not reverse any damage already done. You can try over-the-counter pain medications to ease the symptoms, like acetaminophen or ibuprofen if you tolerate these medicines. There are other medications available if the above is not effective. For these you would need a prescription from your doctor. You also need a full exam by your doctor to ensure that your vascular circulation is not causing any damage to your extremities.
Here is a link to Mayo Clinic's web page about Peripheral Neuropathy for more information.
I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any questions, need more information, or any clarification, please "reply" and I will be more than happy to help you.
