Thu, May 9 4:27pm · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

@mictim So you are confirming that Michael's Botanicals uses PayPal over the phone… but how much did a bottle of NeuroFreeze cost you?

Thanks, McTim… how much per bottle did this cost from Michael's Botanicals… and are you alright with giving them you credit card information? Do they take PayPal, for instance?

I tried Amazon where it currently is unavailable. I then went to Michael's Botanicals website which says it sells it on Amazon…. I could find it nowhere else. In the meantime, you might be interested in a homeopathic cream which helps a lot: Topricin's Fibro Cream (to relieve pains associated with fibromyalgia and neuropathy). It's not magic, but it's helpful, and you can get it on Amazon.

Hi, Peggy. Today, I finished my second of six low level (cold) laser treatments on my hands and feet (due to chemo-induced neuropathy). So far, it has been a non-event in that afterwards, all I feel is a bit flushed. Is it helping? Hard for me to tell as I haven't gone to one of my exercise classes since beginning the treatments. (Strenuous exercise seems to flare the burning.) I normally keep the burning at bay by avoiding alcohol and taking 800-1200 mg of Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA – an OTC supplement) each day. I can live with the numbness and tingling. I get the treatments from my chiropractor for ap. $40 each. Will keep you posted.

Hi, monical — I felt similarly at sea and frustrated as to how to get a second opinion, but I asked my surgeon (who I liked and trusted) for an out-of-network recommendation, and she was more than willing to do so. Turned out to be someone about a half mile away who took my appointment within a day. Be sure to bring your records and test results with you for his/her reference. Surprisingly, this second oncologist never charged me, but spent almost an hour talking with me!

No, the noted study does not get into all the fine points which may interest you, but it does indicate that aromatase inhibitors were significantly more effective than tamoxiphen for postmenopausal women, and that recurrence rates differed little by age, stage, grade (body mass index, progesterone receptor status, or HER2 status) in the various therapy groups of the almost 32,000 patients in the study — important points in which you appeared to be interested.

As posted a few days ago, I would encourage you to read the meta-analysis on aromatase inhibitors versus tamoxifen which I believe addresses some of your questions. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0140673615610741
