How much gaba are you taking
Try kratom. It’s all natural and not addictive. Helps the pain, gives you energy and makes me be more social plus cured my depression. I have taken it for tens years.
Thank you..I will try this…

Yes, I Tk it
I am having peripheral neuropathy caused by, I suspect, a severe narrowing of the neural foramen bilaterally. My neurologist doesn't seem to believe me. Any of here E E G's s indicate normal deterioration. A new MRI is now ordered. Is there an back operation that will deal with this narrowing. Physio therapist and Osteopath both feel the narrowing is causing numbness. Any thoughts?
I know that there are others who have scalp itchiness from having Neuropathy (it is that feeling, not pain). My left shoulder is now affected and I have to use a back scratcher to relieve the itch. I have trouble walking, and rely on a rolling walker when I have to leave the house. But I don't have any tingling in my feet as most with Neuropathy have.
Do you take medicine for Neuropathy? I took Gabapentin for many years but now take Lyrica.
