Hi I have a hx of diabetes and have neuropathy

Hi I have a hx of diabetes and have neuropathy of my lt leg. I take metformin and insulin and just stated taking potassium citrate as I have had hx of kidney stones and the potassium citrate was to prevent crystals forming in the kidneys. Since taking this I have experienced anxiety and sweating. Can the potassium citrate cause these symptoms? and if so is there any other medication that can help with the kidney stones and sweating? I also have an ongoing problem of heartburn for many years.

Hi, I injured my foot (once bent my toes way back almost to my shine, second incident was falling straight down into an empty swimming pool, mainly felt it im my heel though) and the floor never completely healed, relative to pain, not use. But in the past 6-8 months my foot and now calf pain have increased and now I have paresthesia in my whole foot and calf, most notable when in bed and sitting down. My toes hurt for awhile, then my arch hurts (one of the areas where pain started), the top of my foot hurts, then the ball of my foot up into my big toe. I always have pain somewhere in my foot. The paresthesia feels almost like electrical current in my foot and calf. The pain is gradually getting worse. I have had X-rays, a CT of my foot and US of the foot. Just show typical arthritic changes (I m 59). Had a CT of my lumbar with contract. Trying to get an MRI of my LLE. Not diabetic. Toes on my rt. foot hurt a little once in awhile making me think I have neuropathy. Seems to be more than that though. Does it sound like something besides peripheral neuropathy?
