May 29, 2018 · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

Charley here. Wrap Saran Wrap loosely around leg or feet or whatever has numbness or burning etc. don't think too hard about this. Just wrap around loosely till skin is covered. We have to experiment as doctors know how to test but most cases I know have had no cure. I wouldn't put over a wound until tissue is healthy. It works for my poly neuropathy. Send me 10 dollars and I'll send a video. Just kidding. People who say they have cured it are most selling a load of crap good luck man, it is quite a ride

Wow John what are the supplements. Sounds like they really have helped you. Some neuropathies aren't curable as yet. If they were someone could win the Nobel prize . A younger friend of mine had it after her second child . She says after a few months the pain left her. Some neuropathies caused by drugs get better after the drugs are out of their systems. I am very happy of your improvement and am a little sceptable. There are so any people with there healing remedies. As one who has tried most everything without an improvement I again am interested but not hopefully. What are the ones that helped you do you own the companies. Hahaha anyways glad you had some success with yours. When I meditate I feel no pain or numbness. I do it for an hour a day. I add a little time slowly. I too hope that nerves could be healed and the many sufferers find peace and relief from this terrible disease.

hi again John. I have a hypo allergenic moisturizer that works for me. Body and mind are one. When I am negative emotions my feet and legs burn. Fortunately and unfortunately I am in touch with most of my emotions. By distraction like you said seems to be the strongest way to trick and detour pain. I have tried mindfulness and have meditated for years . They totally distract me from my body and mind so I have no pain. The parasympathetic nervous system relaxes us . The sympathetic nervous system is the fight and flight which is good in short bursts but not for those illnesses which are made worse by those chemicals always running through our system. Chronic pain causes many unwanted emotions and physical symptoms. Insomnia, anxiety, depression are fear based. Deal with the fear, learn how to relax without stimulants. Watch your breath . I pay nothing for these and have reaped more benefits then I have ever achieved thru medication . Nerve problems are tricky , and there is help. Good luck John

Dear John, I am very glad you don't have too painful of symptoms, I am sure the ones you have are no fun and chronic. Still they are classified as pain. Try the Saran Wrap, it even gets rid of my numbness. sometimes all you want is a little respite. I don't leave it on too long as im not sure it is good in the long haul. I wrap mine loosely. it is wet underneath when I take it off. My theory in a for pay medical system the doctors will operate because they can and make good money doing it. In Canada where most is universal the doctors get paid anyways so don't need to schedule expensive, painful. and sometimes useless operation. Our problem is long waiting lists and not enough gps., The government is trying to change that..Also a lot of people rely on pharmaceuticals solely. Needed sometimes. I was depressed and anxious in my lifetime. I am 70 now and recovered from all of those. Sometimes with pills and therapy sometimes just talk therapy. You have to do the work in my opinion or you are dealing with illness your whole life. very sad and exhausting. As you can tell I am passionate about my search. I realize this and that we all have to find what works for us. I never try to tell others what they should do and just tell of my own experiences. Thanks to all who are in Pain. It will change. W.

I think we all have to find our own relief. In 6 years not one of the 9 specialists I saw has really helped the pain of my peripheral neuropathy. I have idiopathic neuropathy. Numb from toe to knees, sometimes freezing , sometimes burning but chronic pain. I tried cymbalta, gabapentin, anitriptaline. All the side effects were unbearable. The neurology tests showed yes indeed I had it . I had to find my own relief. What works for me is mostly meditation(I had practiced many years before neuropathy,) counselling for anxiety and depression,cannabis for insomnia, Saran Wrap around calves and feet even takes numbness away. Weird but try it. I wish the pharmaceuticals would have worked but I learned a lot and most days am content and happy. When flare up comes ,warm bath and Saran Wrap. Very fortunate for me I live in Canada and we have health coverage. Also we have good pain clinics that teach about pain. I have also found anything that bothers my nerves bothers my emotions as well. Too hot, too cold, too windy, people who antagonize me, dumb politics you name it. gentle and middle way seems to guide me through this terrible disease. Appreciation Charly
