Peripheral Neuropathy - IVIG, Cymbalta and other Relief

Diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy as a result of Sjogren's Syndrome.

Burning/Numbness is unbearable.

Doctors suggesting IVIG and/or Cymbalta.

Desperate to know anyone's personal experience with either (good and bad) and if either provided any relief (ideally in a Sjogren's case).

Also ANY OTHER suggestions for burning/numbness relief would be so, so appreciated.

From the Heart - Thank You.

Re: Peripheral Neuropathy - IVIG, Cymbalta and other Relief

Cymbalta has really helped my Arms/Legs numbness. I started at 30 and worked up to 120mg and has taken a couple months, but I have to say it works. Dose is normally 60mg but my neurologist said 120 works better, and he was right. My favorite pain and numbness reliever is 40mg prednisone...It is Amazing, but you cant take that dose forever. I do bursts about 4 times a year 40mg a day for 5 days, then 20 mg for 5 days, 10 mg for 5 days, then 5 mg everyday.
