I am new to neuropathy and wondered if yours was caused by either a B12 deficiency and/or anxiety?
Good morning Sueom, I have diabetes and I'm thankful to be able to say that my neuropathy and my toes in the pad of my feet is manageable there are times when it gets a little worse but overall not bad. I will relay to you what works for me the best. I take 600 mg of benfotmine number of years ago my brother mentioned that one of the people he works with used it I tried it and it seems to work well I also take vitamin b complex everyday but I suggest you try the benefit of me. The anxiety issue I think it contribute to a whole host of things including your neuropathy for instance if you're in a stressful situation anything that's going on with your body seems to be amplified so it's not your imagination or it's the real deal try the bend photo mean and hopefully you'll have some success with it. God bless
Hello @sueom, I would like to add my welcome to Connect along with @captphilly777 and other members. Mayo Clinic has some information on B12 deficiency that mentions that it can cause nerve damage and mood disturbances.
"Left untreated, a vitamin B-12 deficiency can lead to anemia, fatigue, muscle weakness, intestinal problems, nerve damage and mood disturbances."
