Good morning @iceblue. Thank you for sharing your current health status. You have dealt with some pretty heavy challenges recently with your brother's passing and your mother's need for care. Do you think that those two stressors have had an effect on your increasing pain? Did you share them with your doctor?
Have you considered adding an anxiety medication like Cymbalta in the morning? I found that really helpful when my life partner was going through 7 weeks of radiation and then I flew home for the close on my mountain home of 20 years and emotional farewells to my village.
You introduced me to something, DTD. I think my friend Mikki has that….she can never find the way to her hairdresser and lives in a shrinking physical world. It does seem like more of our issues now have a clinical name and are treatable. The medical world is certainly changing.
Would you please share with me when you take the Gabapentin. A dose of 300 mg is about the minimum you can take. In my case, I have a reaction to that medication during the daytime. I increased my dose from 900 mg to 1200 mg at about 8:30 pm after the move. It reduces the SFN tingles and needles in my hands and helps with sleep. During the daytime, I prefer medical cannabis to manage the SFN symptoms. Are you using any topicals for your feet?
It is just great that you continue your exercise program. Do you start your day with a hot shower? That can feel very good. Check in with me…… I am right here.
