About me

My name is John Rico and I am a diabetic.  I am 63 years old and have been a diabetic for over 25 years. I have diabetic neuropathy and those of you out there that have neuropathy in your feet and other extremities can fully understand the extent of the pain associated with this condition.  I have been on many types of medications over the years.  I am currently on Mefformin, Novolog, Gabapenton.  The Gabapenton is for my neuropathy.  As many of you know this is merely preventative medication and does not always work. While on this medication I have suffered through the flare ups of my neuropathy, which keeps me up all night long with my body constantly in a state of tension to suffer through wave after wave of shooting pains.  At times I just want to jump out of my skin. The complications from diabetes are many and it is a slow death.  I have been searching the internet to find some sort of cure or relief from the pain and the ongoing deterioration of my body due to the on set of amyotrophy.
