For the last several months I haven't been able to put on any shoes because of this water retention from DM2. My legs are actually splitting open in various spots because of this swelling. My doc started giving me 20mg of furosemide and 2 wks ago she increased it to 40mg but still nothing. I also take 200mg of gabapentin 3x a day for the burning and stinging that I experience all the time. Have any of you had to deal with this and could you give me any other suggestions on how to deal with this.
