What causes tummy pains and extreme soreness?

Hi , I have diabetes type 2 and have suffered from neuropathy in my legs which my gp thinks is related, He has given me gabapentin and tramadol to relieve the pain which has worked well. The problem I have now is increasing tummy pains which feel very much like sunburn. This pain is evident most days from early afternoon and makes me feel extremely sore. Can you advise what might be causing it?

Hi.
Thanks for your query.
If there is pain in spite of Gabapentin and Tramadol you are taking for leg pain, The cause of the pain in abdomen has to be searched on.
There can be a mild infection due to diabetes or a chronic problem.
I would suggest to go for a clinical examination for pain in abdomen and go for ultrasonography/ CT scan of abdomen to confirm or rule out specific infections. As also go for blood , urine and stool tests as there is a possibility of a complication due to diabetes.
