What is the best solution to Diabetic Neuropathy in hands and feet?

I have recently developed Diabetic Neuropathy in my feet and it keeps me up at night with the pain. I am using a prescription called "voltaren" which my doctor suggested, but it only partially works. Is there anyone who has found a better solution?

    A drug called Neurontin. You gradually build up dose you take. Ask your Dr. YOU CAN NOT STOP TAKING IT WITHUT WEANING YOUR SELF OFF OF IT EITHER> ALSO- what helps me more than anything is simple foot stretching excercises when I lay down and before I get up, Takes 1 minute. Just flex your toes upward 10 times. Sounds totally weird, but I do not have to take anymore meds for diabetic neuropathy. I am doing excellent.

    I took tegretol and Mecobalamin (Special Vitamin B12) and of course Tramadol a painkiller. If your doctor didn't prescribe the painkiller , change Doctors. He does not understand how we suffer. Also getting blood sugars in control is also the Key.

    Good luck my friend.

    Monitor your blood glucose levels. If you have diabetes, monitoring your blood glucose levels will help keep your blood glucose under control and may help improve your neuropathy.

    Have your doctor prescribe Cymbalta. It works for me.
