Re: Need support

Hi zoey123, welcome to this support group! There are twenty million sufferers like us in the USA. I was diagnosed with PN going on two years and have been on all medications that did not help. I am taking 200mgs of Lyrica a day and it is not helping with the burning feet, and numbness in my legs and the electric shocks going through my back between shoulder blades. Also have sciatica in lower right backside but have no pain going down my leg which usually comes with this disorder. I am not diabetic and have all tests done and the only test that finally came up for PN was a skin biopsy which showed a damaged nerve ending. I have Idiopathic PN which sounds like you have the same problem. Taking 5mgs of Endocet (generic for Percocet) when cannot tolerate the pain. Am on sleeping pills too. Did not want to make this so long, try to stay in contact, wishing you for more better days, God speed.
