Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy?

Ask your MD about ketamine, singly,or in combination. The main use originally was for Cancer patients,but some people have had success with it for general pain (non-specific?)

I just looked at three references, as recent as 2015. * Generally,they
concluded that it was worth the risks but that the patient has to be
monitored closely.*

I absolutely agree with you but what happens when you have 8 autoimmune diseases and you have to take multiple Meds? Its very frustrating!

Which 8 autoimmune diseases do you have?

Were they diagnosed by the same doctor or team?

How many meds are you on?

Just trying to understand the situation.

I DO NOT THINK THAT IS PERIPHERAL BUT *MUSCULAR NEUROPATHY.*

*CHECK MAYO CLINIC.*

@mfelton

ginny, I take a multi vitamin B called Nerve Renew that helps some, however I have found a pain pill (hydrocodone) to be the best treatment for me. The Nerve Renew was recommended by the Neurologist and I order it from Neurophy Treatment Group in Indiana over the Internet.

I have taken the Meds mention here. Those Meds over time , stress the liver and no longer helped. My liver test where not good, so now I take very little Meds and avoid damaging my liver miore with long term medicine useage. As I age , my body canno longer handle those strong Meds. Healthy eating and moving around gently helps. At night , I start mindfulness and drink tea and massage. I feel less stress, more in control and kettle to none pain med. if needed. And “no” , I am not a old person, just smart about my body’s needs.

Yes! I too, am eating healthily. And the MayoClinic Rehab, did wonders for me. I learned a lot and it did change the way, I eat,sleep,relax, and just plain OFF “man-made ” drugs! Pain can be refocus, and I learned to keep my pain, at a low level. I always overdo my things (like,work,walk a lot,clean,etc.), and then I pay the price at the end. Its’ called “PUSH and CASH”. I have pain still, but feel in control, with out heavy pain meds and, eat better and feel at “peace’ with myself . Hope this helps others! Thank you, MAYO!

Yea! for you Timerdude. Makes sense to me. I’m trying to do it on my own and keep my mind busy, get as much exercise as I can manage, do housework and hug my cat. Am sleeping well now,(but the stressors in my life have subsided (work, etc.)Now .80 YO, I worked till I was 74 so now I can say retirement and lack of the stress has made it possible for me to take charge of myself… don’t have to take blood pressure meds any more either. Discomfort, tingling, hot, swelling feet .in the evenings herald that it’s time to give feet and ankles a rest along with a gentle massage with foot cream. I have a bloodclot in my leg so I don’t massage too heavily but am on warfarin but that’s the only med – so far. Chemo took its toll on the PN…

You are awesome ! Proud to know, you are a uplifting type of person, we
should all learn to follow!

@medic7054

Apparently you do NOT have much pain. Please do not be shocked that we do and want to have less pain in our lives.

When one dismisses a particular drug or treatment options without trying them, then I can only assume that their pain is not that severe or they have not suffered for enough years. Mayo says there is NO cure for me, so I will try anything.

Mayo made the diagnosis so I think they should know better than a lay person.
