Sat, Jan 12 8:49pm · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

From what I have read from the postings we are all suffering from some form of Peripheral Neuropathy and are looking for a treatment of some kind that will take away the pain so we can feel "human" again. It may take a group of doctors or young medical students who have Peripheral Neuropathy and willing to do the research required to understand what causes the pain and how to deal with it. We will continue doing what we have been doing, and hurting, until something is done to help us. Good luck to all.

Things have really changed. When I my body was unable to process lactose there were very few foods to choose from that tasted good. I am happy that I am able to have milk products and I am very happy that anyone milk lactose intolerant can now have foods that taste good, like yogurt. What upsets me is the number of people that CAN have cow's milk but say they are lactose intolerant and they have no idea what they are talking about.

Dec 31, 2018 · Lactose free yogurt ? Any suggestions in Digestive Health

When I was unable to tolerate cow's milk (lactose) I was able to tolerate cream, which has no milk (lactose) in it, I either had rice milk or cream. Anyone who can not tolerate lactose can have goat's milk or camel's milk – if you can get it in the United States. I am able to tolerate cow's milk now, after 30+ years of not have any, when I had a third of my GI Track removed. (I would not recommend this method.) I now have to eat yogurt, after the surgery, to make sure I have the necessary flora and fauna in my gut. When I was unable to have lactose I could have milk in baked items or aged (60 days) cheese and I did not have any cramping. I hope this information is helpful. Good luck.

@dustins76
Dustin, it is a maizing you are upright. I do not have nor have I ever had what you have, you may just keep it. So, what I say you do not have to believe. I have some neuropathy from my 2 strikes, my body and brain are not talking with each other at the same time. It can also be true for anyone who has surgery on their back, the messages from the body goes through the spine to get to the brain. (Talk about the "bug" that was found in the "walk in" computer that shut in down.) You could have a "bug" that is causing all your problems. Now, if you believe that I have this bridge I want to talk with you about.

I believe we are ahead of the medical community. The brain is still a mystery to most of the doctors, it may take another 10 years before doctors finally get through medical school and understand the brain better and how it works. Keeping a journal is all we can do and share it with anyone and everyone who wants to read it. I have educated a few doctors because I keep at it. If explaining something one way does not work I will try another way (with more information) the next time I see the doctor. The more you know when something happened and what you were doing before it happened the better you may be able to figure out the relationship between the two. If there is one.

Good luck,

Just an FYI for the numbness. I have numbness in my feet from my strokes. I find that when I have taken off my shoes and socks I move my feet over the carpet in the bedroom. Most of the time I do not feel anything but I know I am stimulating the bottoms of my feet, and it can't hurt I hope it is doing some good. I did it before my strokes and it felt good then so why not now even if I cannot feel it.
