Most common cause seems to be diabetic sensory neuropathy ie. Damage to nerves of the feet due to diabetes. It happens due to long standing high or fluctuating sugar levels. Medicines are available to reduce the intensity of pain. Smoking and alcohol intake can aggravate this condition . Please check your hba1c levels as well as it can give a better idea of the overall sugar control .
