I have had neuropathy for the last 14 years. The doctors only gave me pills that are not helping. I would like to have a stem cell done but I cannot afford it. It seems that the pain is getting worse. Yesterday I must of yelled 10 times the pain was so bad.

@jacksgarden, I'm sorry to hear you are in so much pain. The problem with stem cell therapy for neuropathy is that I don't believe it's there yet even though there is a lot of advertising about it. I've only heard of some success when treating diabetic neuropathy. Here's more information from the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR):
