: I have been diagnosed with diabetic neurophy within the past month. I am taking medication(Neurontin and Ultran), which help some but still get upper back and chest pains except when very active or under hot water. I still have dificulty sleeping in a bed. Mostly, I sleep in a lounge chair that is lightly padded. I would appreciate any helpful suggestions.
A relative of mine has had Diabetic Neuropathy for several years and during this time it gradually got worse to the point he could not walk to is mailbox . He has been taking alpha lipoic acid with very good results.
ALA is relatively new but the research work was done in Germany and by a Prof. Lester Packer at the Univ. of Calif with good results. It worth a try---Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant derived from potatoes. There are some books available ---also worth doing a search online.
