To those that suffer from abnormal sensation, what helps to relieve the sensations? What have you tried? What has helped or worsened your symptoms?

Racheal….. same here! Hot baths when I reach my cut off point ! I’ve tried everything. I’m up all hours of the night. The fatigue sucks the worse. It’s so over whelming. I just have to lay down. Rest and peace of mind sometimes is the best.

Hello @bal – I'm so sorry for your chronic pain from neuropathy. It's a big club to join! You are spot on with rest and peace. Also, moderation and modification have helped me tremendously. I learned how important it is to balance my days with movement (because motion is lotion), distraction, rest, mindfulness/meditation, belly breathing, and positive self-talk. Being up through the night is awful. What sort of tools do you use for distraction in helping you get back to sleep?

At 75, I alternate gentle yoga, walking, tricycling, eating oatmeal, & portion control to deal with paresthesia of limbs, osteoarthritis, & digestive issues (gallstones). Also, have good relationship with my empathetic PCP; no alcohol, no smoking, eating non-inflammatory fruits/veggies, backyard puttering & always looking forward to a positive day! Be hopeful…modern med tech will come up with therapy that works! Best to all!

Hello @fisbo, thinking of you and wondering how you've been coping these days?

Nothing has helped with the burning, tingling and catus like feeling I have from my toes all the way through my buttocks. Everything I have tried makes it worse.
