    Hi,
    I have only just joined the forum but have been diabetic for coming on 19 years. I had the same a while back where I had pains in both legs and various places, when it got to the point I could barely walk I went to the doctors and they said it is neuropathy just because of the length of time I had been diabetic. So it may be related to a cold/ flu or it could be the start of neuropathy so I would recommend seeing a doctor if it doesn’t get any better.

    Has anyone suggested low potassium levels? I find I get a hell of a lot of aches and pains when my potassium levels are low, potassium levels can be pushed down as a result of a few hypos, might be worth having potassium checked by GP to rule it out
