Hi Jenny, what tests have they done on you to evaluate your condition ?
like have they done a 3 or up to 5 hour Glucose tolerance to test for prediabetes, some doc's think that a simple fasting glucose test will show up diabetes [ a major cause ] but some don't realize that nerve damage can happen even in a prediabetic state, tests for vitamin deficiencies like b12, b1, b6 and vitamin E, folate, toxins, some medications and even to much alcohol or Gluten sensitivity can cause PN and the list goes on and on.
If any of those very basic tests above have not been done, i would find a neuro that specializes in neuropathy to give you the best chance of finding the cause, the cure remains in finding the culprit that's causing your nerve damage.
Some meds may lesson the severity, like Tramadol SR, amitriptyline or anticonvulsants, NSAIDs, Lyrica, if burning is present some have found relief from using Biofreeze and or B1 [thiamine ] taken in divided doses during the day and Benfortamine [ a very strong b1 ]
