: I have had neuropathy in both feet since 9/99. Nerve Conduction Studies didn't show much. Neurologist has tried Neurontin (made me feel "weird"), Amitriptylene, and now Tegretol. They seem to make my pain tolerable, but don' t get me back to totally functional. I finally got an MRI done and it showed a herniated disk at L5/S1. Neurosurgeon doesn't feel this is related to my feet. Does anybody have any suggestions? I have two small children and would like to be able to do more with them. Appreciate any comments you may have.
I would get my B-12 checked, I have had neuropathy from a B-12 defiency for over 5 yrs and will have a lifetime of B-12 injections to stay on top of it. It wouldn't hurt to have it checked. when I went to see the Dr it was because of neck, head shoulder feet and arm pain, never dreamed it was damage from B-12 def which I had been symptomatic for many years prior. I regained some of my functioning but was left with permanent nerve and muscle damage. Get it checked. Lots of damage can result for Vit def especially B-12. NancyH
