    Has anyone with diabetic neuropathy experienced their left leg go to sleep on the a couple of times and then have to learn to walk on it again. Then 4mths later the right leg goes on you and you have troubles walking on that leg for a short while but only lasts a little shorter than the left side for going to sleep? Angela T

    No I haven't personally experienced anything like that and I would suggest that you keep track of these events and mention them to your medical team when you talk to them.

    It is too easy to associate everything that's wrong with our bodies with diabetes, that's just the way our minds work. But it ignores the fact that there might be something else going on.
