May 18, 2018 · Throbbing in foot due to neuropathy in Neuropathy

My painkiller is lortab. I am on it for various reasons and and I doubt that it will be taken off of it or some other pain killer as I have other issues besides nephropathy. However I was told that I couldn't have an anxiety drug and a pain killer prescribed to me without a lot of paperwork.

May 15, 2018 · Throbbing in foot due to neuropathy in Neuropathy

I prefer nothing on my feet, I have issues every night from pain and sometimes it feels like someone is zapping me. My favorite thing to use to settle things down are blue emu and massage. I have a handhead electric massager and a large massager that I put my feet on. I am on gabapentin 900mgs. With all the conversation about it causing brain fog, I have been taking less of it.

Apr 22, 2017 · Welcome to Our New NETs Group! in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)

I am having an emotional issue right now. We all know that from time to time our doctors will leave and we will get assigned a new doctor. That is has happened to me recently and I am very nervous about starting with a new doctor. I think the problem is each doctor has their own protocol on how they handle treatment and I am afraid that this new Doctor will change things. I won’t know until May 15 and I am very stressed about it. There are no Net doctors in Las Vegas.

Mar 28, 2017 · gabapentin and muscle pain in Chronic Pain

Hello @pkindron – during the day I put a 5000 mg B -12 under my tongue. My neurologist determined that low B-12 in my body might be causing my problems and wants my readings for B-12 in the high numbers. they usually range in the low numbers for normal even though I take vit b-12 shots. He increased my gabapentin from 300mg to 900 mg, which I take i in the evening and the other 2 before bed.

I take gabapentin for nuropothy and it helps me. I only take it in the evening because that is when it bothers me the most. I take 900 mgs every night before bed.

Mar 10, 2017 · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

hi jjwest – have your vitamin b-12 checked. I am on 900 mgs of gabapentin. I also have vit b-12 shots and take 5000 mg of vit b-12 under the tongue every day. Ideally your vit b-12 needs to be in the upper limits of normal

5000 mg b-12 under the tongue every day did wonders for me

Feb 13, 2017 · My Husband was newly diagnosed with Carcinoid Cancer in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)

I have been on sandostatin since sept 2014. After extensive surgery to remove carcinoids on large and small intestines, lymph nodes and O scan showed mets to liver and kidney, I was put on sandostatine. They would not have put me on sandostatin if there were no mets. even though the sandostatin has shrunk the mets so small the oscan can no longer detect them, I will be on sandostatin or some other carcinoid treatment for the rest of my life, cause once it has gotten into your lymph system, it will continue to spread but hopeful the treatment will keep it from growing back soon or growing elsewhere in my body. I’m in a good place now compared to where I was 2 years ago.
