Hello! Such helpful discussions. I am 57 and have been suffering w idiopathic SFN for almost 3 years. I am trying to manage with healthy lifestyle and such… Wondering…has anyone had success with microdosing w THC??? I have heard it can help symptoms. Possibly a better alternative to Gabapentin….

Hello @lcassotta, Welcome to Connect, an online community where patients and caregivers share their experiences, find support and exchange information with others. A healthy lifestyle can certainly slow down and help some of the symptoms of neuropathy or at least not make it worse which not so healthy lifestyle can make it worse. There is another discussion where members have shared their neuropathy journey which I think you may find helpful.

@artscaping has some experience with using THC but I'm not sure about micro-dosing. Here's a link to her story in the discussion above – https://connect.mayoclinic.org/comment/310344/

The Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy has some information on Complementary + Integrative Therapies on their site: https://www.foundationforpn.org/living-well/integrative-therapies/
