Thumbs up Re: neuropathy

Hi jcs22, join the crowd that are suffering with PN. The bug crawling feeling is most likely the tingling sensation. I have that mostly while lying down. It starts on the side of my body from foot to shoulder. Also have the burning and numbness of feet going up my legs. Have been on all medications and have ended up with 200mgs of Lyrica which is not helping at all. Are you seeing a neurologist and taking medis. Hoping for the best to you!

Re: neuropathy

hi,
thanx for the reply. my doctor gave me nerontin but it makes me so groggy, i can't take it. i'm going to try some vitamin b today. dr. weil, the alternative medicine dr. said that would help. good luck.

Hi, forgot to ask if you were diabetic. I am not. Had blood tests for vit.b, glucose, lymes disease, etc and all showed up negative. Skin biopsy showed up a dead nerve ending. Take care,

Re: neuropathy

hi,
i'm not diabetic either. my doctor wants a brain scan to see what's up. guess i'd better do it. sounds like you've been thru more procedures than i have. hope you get better.
