Lately my feet are feeling weird – like they are being squeezed tight inside my socks, but I am not wearing any socks. Then at night I get sharp sudden pains that just shoot into my ankles, heels and feet from nowhere that feels like an electric shock. It wakes me up, and keeps me awake. What is going on? Do I have that diabetes nerve pain like they show on TV? I am 36 years old, an active mom (2 kids ages 11 and 9), work part-time, and go for walks with my kids and the dog. I have been diabetic for 17 years.
