I feel like Physical Therapy is making me worse.

Hi @lauraj155, I have not heard of PT being used as a treatment for small fiber neuropathy but I know that the PT will help slow down the muscle loss and help with the flexibility. I just don't know how it can help with the pain. I'm hoping other members will share their thoughts or experience with you. I can certainly understand your frustration and I do think we have to listen to what our body is telling us.

Are you on any medications for the pain?

@johnbishop, hi John and thank you for your reply. I do take Gabapentin and Elavil for pain. Been on these for many years. I have been reading about the Protocol and have heard that R-ALA does help neuropathy. A few months ago I also had a high level of B6 in blood work but my PCP said he’s never had a patient with B6 toxicity. Something I will discuss with Neurologist in a couple weeks when I finally get to see him. I did order the R-ALA and magnesium. -Laura
