Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy?

Hi my name is Sydney, I have Peripheral Neuropathy, Somedays go well that is to say I can forget about the discomfort. It comes back in the evening I have to remove my socks and some days I can't even put my feet under the Sheets & blankets. I feel at times like I'm walking on nails or pins and needles. The one drug which helps in a smaller way is Pregabalin at 400 mg. Which is a lot, I get dizzy and want to fall asleep. During the day I take 5 mg of Hydrocodone. I've tried oils and creams they help but they don't last very long, hours.

Good evening @mayosloke417. Welcome to Connect. Thank goodness for those "somedays" when you can forget about the discomfort of (PN) Peripheral Neuropathy. I understand about the dizzyness of Pregabalin. I ended up only able to use Gabapentin at nighttime because of the dizziness if I use it during the day.

Sydney, have you visited with a specialist or other clinician to evaluate and confirm your diagnosis? Did you have a skin biopsy or do you have the results of other nerve function tests? That might be helpful as you seek other medications.

You also mentioned using topicals and found them to be a little on the short side timewise. Have you explored medical cannabis at this point? Is it available to you where you live?

How long have you had PN?

May you be safe, protected, and free of inner and outer harm.
Chris
