    Hello,

    yes i think this could be possible - i read about a Vietnam veteran

    who got poisened by Agent Orange and developed neuropathy.

    I myself most likely got poisened by pesticides during my work

    in the lab and developed this disease.

    But when it can be shown by your dr. that chemotherapy chemicals can cause

    this problem, then this should made public.

    I got the same diagnosis that only pain management is possible

    but no cure. I recommend to use Gabapentin or Pregabalin in high doses

    in addition to Tramol to suppress the pain.

    But i also dont know about a cure.

    Greetings from Chris

      Hi Judy,

      that sounds pretty bad, I'm sorry that you experience that terrible pain.

      I recommend to switch to pregabalin which can be used in lower doses and does not cause acidic stomach but is much more expensive.

      From my experience, stress and running around a lot does promote the pain. Try to avoid.

    My cousin has chemo treatments for ongoing bone cancer.  She takes Gabapentin for the pain in her legs. she says that without it she would be on the floor.   I have tried taking it for the burning and pain in my feet, unrelated to her condition, but the side effects were too much for me.  Combined with other meds that I take, it causes blurred vision, and I cannot enjoy life with blurred vision.  But it has increased my cousin's quality of life so you may want to talk to your doc about it.

      Hi Annie,

      gapapentin itself is not a painkiller but should be combined with Tramadol. The alternative is pregabalin but this is much more expensive.

      Without this combination, Tramol + Gaba (or Pregabalin) I could not survive the neuropathic pain. Tramol alone cannot achieve a pain relieve comparable. Hope that helps you.

      Chris
