Sep 19, 2016 · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

Was originally diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma because of presence of M-Protein and skull lesions. Downgraded to MGUS when lesions, on second reading, were described as “not consistent with multiple myeloma”. Only 20% chance of progression to MM. No other blood abnormalities.

dosage of 25 mg; 1 tablet daily at bedtime. No heart issues. After 3 nights, sleep is much improved and pain is not an issue. Yes, side effects are lengthy, but it seems every med has them…just have to be careful. I’ll report progress after 2 weeks..so far so good.

Went to Internist yesterday with complaint of pain interrupting sleep numerous times. Rx: Elavil ( Amitriptyline) 25 MG.
Slept soundly with only one trip to bathroom. Groggy for about an hour after getting up, but fully alert after about an hour.
Promising !

Idiopathic PN, started about 15 years ago with mild numbness in soles of both feet. Has gradually spread to involve entire feet and ankles. Days are generally manageable with 900mg Gabapentin 3x daily and Voltaren (Diclofenac) 3-4 X as needed. Naproxen may be needed in addition and at night when sleep is problematic. Have not visited neurologist in 18 months and wondering if any new therapies would help.
