Dealing with Neuropathy for Decades
I have been dealing with neuropathy with several time periods of no or limited pain due to medications / surgeries / procedures… but its been 21 years. I fear disability. (I am 55). My neuropathy came from an injury to my left foot. My husband and I own our own company. I was working 7 days a week but have cut back to part days – 7 days a week. I hate the term "disability" – I have made myself walk, concentrating on proper walking (even with great pain)…it has progressed now from my foot up my shin and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. What has worked for others? I am on Lyrica, Cymbalta, lidocaine cream. I am seeing a specialist about more nerve blocks (I have had 4 previous ones a long time ago – with quite a bit of relief) at the end of this month.
