Good evening @sandiwantstofeelbetter I hope you are sleeping well as I write this. Welcome to Connect, a group of caring patients, caregivers, and providers. We cannot diagnose or prescribe. We are happy to share our experiences and to try and help you in a safe and secure environment.
Let me see if I can interpret what you are trying to tell me about your pain and suffering. You have neuropathy which right now is affecting the lower leg area. You are very sensitive to some medications and do not seem to have a medication routine that works consistently. Have you had a medication screening to determine what might work best for you? What type of clinician are you seeing? Neurologist? Have you been given a diagnosis?
How long have you been suffering and floundering as you try to live with high pain levels? Have you been to a pain clinic of any kind?
My neuropathy journey began pretty much the same way….gabapentin and antidepressants. After multiple surgeries, the neuropathy symptoms became more frequent and more intense. I chose to be educated about medical cannabis. And without too many mishaps, I put together a pain management program that works for me. Do you have access to medical cannabis in a reputable, controlled dispensary.?
And finally, would you mind telling me your age and activity level. What hobbies to you have? Do they distract from your pain? Have you experienced the benefits of gentle yoga, mindfulness, and meditation? Our brains can be trained to help us.
As soon as you can respond with additional information, I will be able to connect you with others who have shared your experience and found some answers.
May you be free of suffering and the causes of suffering.
