Conolidine has not helped me at all for peripheral neuropathy
@kiro0001 Thanks so much, Kia. You are kind. Conolidine did nothing. How are your legs? Any changes? Lori R

Thanks so much for asking. Interestingly, my right leg is much better. My left leg is the one that experienced the initial symptoms and it’s still more symptomatic, but not as much. Symptoms include the water dripping sensation, tight skin feeling, swollen feeling, and a random shooting pain around my ankle. However, these sensations have significantly reduced and some days I dont feel anything at all. 🤷🏾♀️
I drastically changed my diet about two months ago. I changed my diet to include more whole foods, I eliminated red meat, sugar, and dairy, and I limit carbs. The low carb aspect has been very difficult for me because I had a very intimate relationship with pasta. I replaced pasta with zucchini noodles but it’s not the same. I also take R-ALA, Omega 3, and Magnesium (which I think eliminated the cramping that I sometimes experienced in my left leg in the morning). I honestly don’t know if any of the aforementioned diet changes and supplements are really helping or if my body is just going it’s own thing. But, I’ll keep at it and report back.
I had a neurology appointment on December 4th but when I got there, I was told that the doctor had an emergency so my appointment was moved to January 16th, which is during the week that I’m scheduled to have jury duty. 😕 It’s like the universe doesn’t want me to find out what’s wrong with me. But, I am wise enough to count my blessings and limit complaints because things could always be worse.
Have you given any more thought to the spinal cord stimulator? I know that surgery scares you and I can relate to that fear because my symptoms started after a foot surgery.
