Peripheral Neuropathy - Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM)

Posted by @johnbishop, Aug 1, 2017

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is the term for medical products and practices that are not part of standard medical care. The August 1st Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy E-Tips email had an interesting article on complementary and integrative therapies. You can view the newsletter on their website at:

https://www.foundationforpn.org/living-well/integrative-therapies/?utm_source=E-Tips+8.1.17&utm_campaign=E-Tips++8.1.17&utm_medium=email

The newsletter has a section on Natural products including a list that includes a little information on each of the supplements/vitamins and what part they play in helping. I would like to invite others who have tried any of these or different natural products available over the counter to share their story.

Also, it’s a good idea to discuss any additions of vitamins/supplements you are planning to take with your doctor team.

I get the most pain relief with Medical Marijuana. I also take Lyrica 600 mg four times daily for the shooting pains.

I totally agree. Without the benefits of MM, my quality of life would be minimal. Tell me more about Lyrica for the electric shock pains. Mine start between 4 and 5 am. When do you take it and how long does it keep what I call the Whoosies at bay?
