    Re: Neuropathy help?

    I have had severe neuropathy that started in 1984 with a very severe ruptured disc. Either the rupture or the fallowing surgery damaged a nerve. Later I fell and damaged a vertebra in my lower neck. Doing a lot of research I learned that anybody with neuropathy needs a lot of vit B 1. Trouble is that b 1 is water soluble and most of it passes out of your body without being used. I found that there is now on the market a lipid soluble b 1 that is quickly utilized by the body. It is called Benfotiamine. I would suggest that you check into it. It keeps the pain away in my arms, but my legs were too far gone when I found out about it. I have hears that LDN has helped some but I can't find any information about it on the internet. Hop this helps.

    Dear gabby,

    I'm moving up on 70 and have neuropathy in a wrist that had been broken and in one of my feet, due to the ankle having been badly broken. It's tough to deal with. Regular stretches seem to help the most, that and OTC pain medication and just walking. But that stresses all the other joints. For me it's always pain somewhere!

    Re: Neuropathy help?

    When nothing else seems to deaden some of the pain in my feet, I use Aspercreme. It lasts for quite a while and can be reapplied. For me it does a remarkable job. I put it on my toes and ball of my feet before going to bed. That way I can at least get to sleep. The other thing that has helped me, as I posted before, Is Benfotiamine. It is a lipid soluble vitamin B 1. From what I have read people with nephropathy need a lot more of B 1. But regular B 1 is only water soluble and most of it just passes though the body and out. Benfotiamine is quickly absorbed by the body. It keeps the neuropathy in my arms under control. My legs were, evidently, too far gone for it to do much good, so right now I am taking LDN hoping that it will help.
