grifulvin AND peripheral-neuropathy

I am 28 yr old female who is generally in good health. however a yr ago i went to get a pedicure and next day noticed i was getting a ringworm on my foot, i was able to get rid of it with topical ointments but there was some more little ones still popping up on my skin. I went to the doctors and got grifulvin pills, 10 days into taking them i had peripheral neuropathy symptoms went to the doctors and i was told to stop taking them so i stopped after taking them for 14 days. its now been 5 wks since i stopped but i still have the symptoms, please help i just want to know if its possible that they were caused by the antifungal. my bloodwork came back normal. or could this also be caused by stress because i have been stressing a lot about it. i have no numbness just tingling and pain shooting all over body at random occasions.

Re: grifulvin AND peripheral-neuropathy

I personally have never heard of that causing PN...have you seen a Neurologist? If not I'd suggest doing so.

I hope you find your answers and get a cure to your problem or at least something to help w/you issues.
