Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • I have so much sensitivity and swelling in my arms and legs and the pain is almost unbearable and the sores can get to be as large as quarters. My doctor said it was the first time she had ever seen this and really didn't know how to treat it other than my stopping the Humalog. My endocronologist just doesn't seem interested in my situation at all. How do I get rid of the pain? I can't even walk at time.
