Brief Answer:
You may need slight increase in dosage.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I had gone through your query and understood your concerns.

Sir, In long standing diabetes, these symptoms are common. The sugar levels you have given are slightly fluctuating and slightly higher.

The first step you need to do is get HbA1c test done, If this is higher to normal, which shows that average blood sugar level is not under control. You need slight increase in dosage or addition.

Coming to jaw pain, Pregabilin plus Methyl cobalamin drugs could help you.
You can discuss these changes with your treating doctor.
