While many people think of diabetes as a painless condition, millions of diabetics suffer from tingling toes or painful feet. High blood sugar can cause injury to the nerves and blood vessels throughout the body. The first nerves that are affected are the smallest ones furthest away from your spinal cord. Those nerves will stretch to the toes and your feet where it can cause a constant burning feeling in the feet. This problem, called diabetic neuropathy, can completely rob your feet of the ability to sense pain.
If your doctor has told you that you have diabetic neuropathy, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. The Social Security Administration doesn’t make it easy for those with diabetic neuropathy to get the Social Security Disability benefits that they deserve.
