: : 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.

: For about three years I have had severe pain in my feet with neuropathy and I'm diabetic. I suggest you ask your Dr. for a prescription of 600mg of motrin, Along with 100mg.of neurotin every 6 to 8 hrs really does help. another feel good relief is soaking your feet in warm tap water with a few drops of tea tree oil in the water. Follow the soaking with a antigel cream or lotion. You must use the lotion to keep your feet from drying out. I have discovered that most Doctor's do not know very much about treating this foot condition and we have to find a way to combat it through GOD giving us the wisdom and understanding for our relief. Speak to your feet in the name of Jesus and plead HIS blood over your feet claiming they are healed. Believe me this helps us to keep on go
: ing. You may be in severe pain, but keep on saying YOU ARE HEALED in the name of Jesus

Hi. I'm new here, but I've had Peripheral neuropathy in my feet since late 1998. Mine was caused by a severe deficiency in Vitamin B-12. Have your doctors ever checked you vitamin and mineral levels in your body for any deficiencies? If not, it couldn't hurt to check it out. My problem isn't so much an issue of constant pain, but having my feet cramp up. They used to hurt, but I went to a Rehabilitation specialist (because of injuries sustained from a car injury) and I asked her about my feet, and she said it would help if I wore sturdy shoes that tie up, instead of loafers, and to put in padded insoles. I found the gel inserts most comfortable of all the different kinds offered. Just a couple of suggestions. I hope you get your problem resolved quickly. Never rule out seeking a second opinion from a different specialist. Good Luck. But2fly1
