You are saying to be a diabetic for long time. Usually, diabetes is often associated with neuropathy (damages to the nerves) together with lack in vitamins and minerals
(especially those helpful for the well-function of muscles and bones).
In your case, if I was your caring doctor would advise to :
- take multivitamin
supplements (containing vit B complex,D, calcium, magnesium
- check for possible brain accidents or/and peripheral nerves (paralysis
- if nothing of concern with your brain or/and nerves, apart taking pain-killers; I'd suggest to do light-to-moderate exercises to help your muscles and bones move and relieve pain too.
Shortness of breathe might be related to:
- muscle spasms
- possible heart disease
as a complication of diabetes
- lung/respiratory problems
Further evaluation with EKG, chest X-ray is needed to exclude such problems.
Hope it helped!
