Anyone go to a Mayo Clinic?

John, thanks for your reply. I'm so concerned that individuals with PN are spending hundreds (even thousands) of dollars to find a cure. We may be able to reduce the symptoms/pain with some meds or devices, but there isn't anything that will 'cure' neuropathy. Please be careful!!

Hi @lois6524, I have the same concern. Unfortunately I learned a little late and have spent a lot of money on things before I researched them only to find out they didn't help my symptoms no matter how great they sounded. After I joined Connect I found recommendations from others and a few sites that help you research the validity of some of the products preying on folks with neuropathy, including a discussion here on Connect.
