Hi @denisectx that must be so frightening to see your condition continue to worsen and finding no solution.

I wanted to introduce you to fellow Connect members @grandmar @elained @steeldove and @johnbishop all have experience with different ares of neuropathy and may be able to offer you support and you continue to deal with the pain your neuropathy causes.

@denisectx back to your neuropathy, you mentioned you had four nerve blocks in the past, how long ago was this? How did the doctor's treat them to provide relief?

In the 90s I had lidocaine injected locally when I was desperate and had no idea what was going on. I thought it was from the RSD I had after the severe sprain or the surgery for a neuroma that developed on top of damaged area. But had not heard of neuropathy. Around 2002 I had a series of nerve blocks done at my spine – the last one was supposed to be a permanent one. It lasted 3 years almost before it all started up again when the neuroma returned. Finally had surgery in 2017 when it was getting pretty big and the neuropathy was not being helped by the tramadol any longer. There were other meds tried earlier – OxyContin being the worst
