@jesfactsmon @fredjan2016 I have read and also been told by pain medicine doc at Mayo that a 50% improvement in pain level is considered a success. I'll pray for more than that 😉

@jimhd My Pain Medicine doc at Mayo said that a peripheral nerve stimulator is better for targeting pain in feet and ankles. I'm heading back up to Rochester MN next month to trail a SCS for my back issues and a peripheral nerve stimulator for meralgia paresthetica and foot/ankle pain. Should be a fun trip!!!

@avmcbellar @johnbishop Hey, folks, how about setting up a separate group for cooking?? It doesn't really belong in Neuropathy.

@jimhd Jim, there's a huge difference between a spinal cord stimulator and a peripheral nerve stimulator. I was suggesting a PERIPHERAL NERVE STIMULATOR for those whose neuropathy pain is limited to the feet and ankles.

For all of those with severe neuropathy pain in the feet and ankles, I urge you to talk with your doc/pain management about the possibility of getting a peripheral nerve stimulator. Take a look at SPR Peripheral Nerve Stimulator (SPRINT) and Bioness StimRouter. SPR is A 60-day treatment; StimRouter is a permanent implant.

@jesfactsmon Hank, if your wife's neuropathy pain is only in her feet and legs, you and she might want to take a look at the possibility of getting a peripheral nerve stimulator installed. Read about the SPR Peripheral Nerve Stimulator (SPRINT) and the Bioness StimRouter. Could give her some pain relief.

@jesfactsmon Hank, I'm so pleased that you tried magnesium and found it so helpful. It's a easily overlooked but vital mineral.
