Hello, I am Diabetic since 8 years and my right foot front sole has been soft, pinkish and I feel little numb when I try to close my toes from past 8 days and also my doctor has advised to take MegaNeuron-OD Plus. So would like to ask for suggestions and also would like to know if these are common problems for a diabetic patient.
