Pain management through medication
Diabetic neuropathy is most common in the legs and feet. Without treatment and management, it can become debilitating. The most important thing you can do to lower your risk of all complications, including diabetic neuropathy, is to keep your blood sugar level within the target range.
One of the first courses of action is pain management through medication. Over-the-counter medications, such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen, may help alleviate mild to moderate pain.
Other medications and treatment options include the use of opioid medications.

If you have read my previous posts, you will see that the medication I was prescribed has now been reclassified here in the UK to a class C drug, yes it did help me greatly with my symptoms, but am I prepared to take a class C drug, NO not if I can find an alternative.
