My name is Gary and I am a 51 yr old male from Florida. As you can see from my signature that I have like the rest of you been through alot. My most recent surgery has not really done much but put like I feel is a bulge in my back. Since my surgery I have 2 new problems, the diabetes and the neuropathy in my left foot. I would be interested to know if anyone else has had this problem and I will post in a forum. Just wanted to say Hi and when you read my signature, yes I am one of the few males to have fibro. Talk to everyone soon. :)


  • Hope you're on something for the peripheral neuropathy. I'm not diabetic but I understand sciatica pain. Everyone has been supportive since I joined here the past couple of months. I hope your pain gets under control more. See you around. Charry

  • :) hi and welcome to the forum! :H we are here to offer you support and answer what questions we can. being over 50 is definitely a turning point in how our bodies treat us. i do have sciatica (neuropathy) and have found the new nerve pain medications to be a big help. i don't know about in the foot but you might talk to your doctor about that. make yourself at home and get to know us better. good luck in your pain treatments.
