Re: Neuropathy support formula....hoax or.not?
I know we have corresponded in the past, but I do not remember the details, so please pardon me if I ask the same questions again! I am wondering if you have seen a spine surgeon recently? I'm wondering if perhaps you have developed some instability and there are nerves that are being compressed, rather than assuming it is pain caused by a nerve that is permanently damaged.
Sometimes with a laminectomy, if too much bone is removed, it can make a segment unstable, which makes it more likely that a nerve can get caught or trapped. Also if there is any unwanted movement, it causes other damage, such as deterioration of the facet joints at that level.
Before you resign yourself to a lifetime of pain management, I would encourage you to be certain you know what is causing the pain.
If you have only seen a neurosurgeon, I would encourage you to get a "second opinion" with an ortho spine surgeon.
As to your original question, I don't know what particular formula you are referring to, but there is no magic pill that will turn around a neuropathy. There are certain lifestyle changes you can make that help many with neuropathic conditions.
One is to change your diet to one that is based on the principals of a "Mediterranean" diet or "Omega" diet. Avoid eating sugar and white starches. Only use olive and canola oil when cooking.
Get sufficient exercise. And then there are the supplements...the B vitamins are very important. Many people are low on B12 and Vitamin D and don't realize it....there are some other things too, but I need to find my notes to tell you what they are!
I used to take a couple different things that were supposed to make neuropathy go away. They didn't work. What did work was spending 18 months finding a doctor that could diagnose me properly and was willing to look beyond what the MRI appeared to be indicating!!
