The pain that you are having is related to your diabetic status. Are your sugars in control? With uncontrolled sugars, there is peripheral nerve damage which leads to this shooting pains. Take care of what you eat and drink. avoid foods and beverages that have high sugar/alternate forms of sugar/carbohydrate in them. Get regular follow ups and sugar checks done. Take a vitamin tablets to help your nerves.

Patient's with diabetes can have neuropathy. It is seen patients with uncontrolled diabetes.

If attempts are made to control the blood sugar- and blood sugar is kept under control, it normally subsides the symptoms. In addition to this Vitamin B 12 can help.
