There are tests that can prove your condition, 1 - nerve conduction test, 2 - emg, 3 - skin punch biopsy, any pain specialist that can't read the results or does not know how much pain neurpathy can cause, should not be in the feild.

Once proven that you are in extreem pain a good pain doc should be able to medicate you enough to be able to have some quality tof life, even if they tapper you down slowly off the oxy to a safer level and introduce safer other meds to make up the differance.

The reason i asked if you type 1 or 2 was, if you were type 2 and taken metformin it can deplete vitamin B12 levels which is another major cause of nerve damage or perhaps in your case another contributing factor besides high blood sugar levels, but seeing you had the symptoms as a child your nerve damage may not be the cause from diabetes,

I can certainly understand your situation, i used to suffer with a severe case of diabetic neurpathy my self and i know how it affects your life and the need to be properly medicated.

best of luck to you.
