I have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy

I have tried a tens machine and all the natural creams and vitamins, nothing has helped!

Going to my doctors, has anyone had any prescriptions that have helped?

Thank you

    I take Lyrica 100mg 3/day and it helps some.  If you live in a place where it is available, I've found medical cannabis to be helpful.  Acupuncture is the only thing that has given me relief for any length of time.  I recommend it, too.  Ive been diagnosed for 5 years.

      Hello odinhans, thank you for sharing your experiences with us. How long did you have to use acupuncture until it helped? Do you have to use it regularly?

      Hi AlbertC.  It took a couple of appointments before I began to see any real results.  I've been having acupuncture now for about 3 years, but only intensively in the last year and a half. It isn't a miracle cure, but I generally get significant relief of symptoms for 3-5 days after the appt.  I have appts approximately every two weeks.

      Thank you, I've already heard that it does not help everyone. I will ask my doctor for treatment!

      I think it's from the nerve block when I had my knee surgery

      But the verdict is still out

      Still doing testing

    Hi June, have lived with this for years. Had every procedure known to man, nevro implant and after all that and many years of pain still had to go to opiates for relief and sometimes not enough if in flair up. I am on morophone, cymbalta 90 per day. Generally ok but not if in flair up. Hope you are seeing specialist in pain management they have a better understanding of the issues involved. Sorry for your situation and wish you the very best, a hug is on the way.🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀

      I started on 100mg three times a day

      Now on 100 mg 5 times a day

      Much success

      My mood is better, sleep is great and much less pain and numbness in both feet

      I still get some pins and needles feeling in my feet at the end of the day but nothing I can't handle

      Hope this helps

      Have a good day!!
