Hello @amberheilman, I would like to welcome you to Connect along with @jenniferhunter and other members. I'm sorry for your loss of your father. I know not having someone to talk to about your neuropathy can make you feel all alone. It is pretty awesome to have a husband who is supportive. I think one of the best things that we patients with neuropathy can do is learn as much as we can about our health conditions. I lived with neuropathy for 20+ years before seeking a diagnosis and something to help with the numbness. I have idiopathic small fiber peripheral neuropathy but only have numbness and no pain associated with it so I had to look for alternative treatments as there are no drugs that help with numbness. I posted my story earlier on Connect here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/anyone-here-dealing-with-peripheral-neuropathy/?pg=42#comment-65985
@jenniferhunter has given some really good information on Myofascial Release Therapy and it is great discussion to read through. I'm tagging our moderator @ethanmcconkey to see if we should move your post to the following where you can meet other members with similar symptoms and learn what they have found helpful for treatments.
