Brief Answer:
typical diabetic symptoms

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thank you for query.

I understand your problem. This is a typical symptom in diabetics and this condition is known as diabetic neuropathy. This occurs due to uncontrolled sugar levels in body. You need to check your fasting,post prandial and HBA1c levels.
You can also get a vitamin B12 test done to rule out B12 deficiency.
You can take Tab pregaba once daily, but this medicine is available only with doctor's prescription.

Get back if any query

Regards,
Dr VSK
