Objective. The mechanisms underlying the development of diabetic neuropathic pain (NeP) are still unknown. The aim of the study was to evaluate painful diabetic neuropathy in Type II diabetic patients with Leeds Assessment of Neuropathic Symptoms and Signs Scale (LANSS), thermal and vibratory Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) and, EMG supported Diabetic Neuropathy Score (DNS) and to evaluate the differences in patients with and without neuropathic pain.
