Depression and anxiety are lifestyle diseases which needs a lifestyle solution nevetr medicines it can be cured with diet and lifestyle alone do not use medicines for this and spoil your life they cause very serious sideffects never ever told by your psychiatrists headache may be due to eye strain, sinus infections ,bp, migraine, anxiety, sleep issues, allergies, environmental toxins, vitamin deficiency mineral deficiency, stomach issues etc. You may have multiple causes involved. Headaches can be cured with lifestyle and diet changes only. Modern medicines will not work for any lifestyle disease. It puts only a band aid.

My legs and feet have no feeling but the pain is continuous. Over the last 10 years it slowly progressed to both legs and feet. For the 1st 5 years it was like the shooting pain but it has settled down to just constant severe ache like pain in ankles and feet. Blood circulation is fine and wounds heal fast. Although I fall often, I have learned to walk like I am on stilts so I can not use a walker or crutches. I do use a cane and a wheel chair. I often stub my feet and lose nails or break toes without any pain. I fell last fall and broke my fibula. They put in two tightropes in my ankle. As my leg is numb I had very little pain except some in my knee. As I had no pain I could walk the next after surgery as normal with my cane. (upset the hospital staff so they put a million motion buttons so every time I moved a bell would go off) after 2 days they put me in an ambulance to a rehab center but I called my daughter to pick me up the next morning and went home. I pretty much used a wheel chair for three weeks and then went to my podiatrist who took x rays and said it was healed up nicely. I am 90% disabled from vietnam, have type 2 peripheral neuropathy diabetes melitus and have a host of other health problems including acute pancreatic bouts and kidney and bladder problems (which they say I have but I disagree) I do not trust the va for a host of reasons. My questions - could the paralyzed legs come from some other condition that the diabetes or neuropathy? I am grossly over weight usually around 350# but have been big all my life. I am 6'4" but have fairly short legs - inseam 32" and 4x shirts. My cholesterol runs around 150 and the triglycerides about the same. My a1c goes up and down usually between 6.4 and 7 for the last 6 years. For the last 5 years I have used distraction for the pain as most pain killers have very little effect on me.

Hi Lybrate-User, although diabetic neuropathy is a common cause of numbness in both hands/feet, I feel that there's something else that is going on in your case. Your symptoms are typical of bilateral foot weakness with charcot's with repeated falls. Have you been investigated with regards to nerve compression in the lumbar spine- any mri or x rays done? If not, I would highly recommend doing that to rule out canal stenosis. Do feel free to msg me if you feel the need to discuss further.

First you need to control your blood sugar. Numbness is a feature of sensory neutopathy which csn be confirmed by nerve confuction studies. This type of neuropathy is common in diabetes but takes years to develop.

The feeling of less blood flow is only anxiety and BP issue will no cause any such feelings. She needs to check for thyroid levels and anaemia as the causes of feeling weak
