    Hi
    Was diagnosed with diabetes type 1 Nov 2011 n for first 6 months tried really hard to get to grips with it but eventually gave up , only taking insulin really at night n occasionally when I ate.
    Anyways I managed to survive until November 2015 when I was rushed to hospital in a nearly coma due to a dka.
    Was in intensive care for 3 days this gave me the kick up the bum to try n take diabetes serious n take control.
    I am taking control but not without consequences for not taking control.
    I have now got acute serious pains in all my joints that the doctor says is to do with the liquid around my joints getting used to having less sugar.
    I am on liquid morphine n painkillers n tablets for arthritis.
    But basically I am asking has anyone else heard or had this happen to them ??
    Sorry for such a long story
