Thank you for the reply. There are times when I still get worried/anxious when I get the sensations in my feet, but it's no where near as bad as it was, say, even two weeks ago. I imagine going back on Prozac and seeing the therapist have helped. Thankfully, my appetite is back and I am sleeping a bit better. I do have Xanax to help with sleep, but try to avoid it. It only lasts a few hours and, as I've mentioned before, my doctor said that is not a long-term solution.
The sensations are intermittent and sometimes do not happen for a few hours. The pain hasn't changed for the most part. I am very thankful to be able to sleep at night. Yes, I do worry it might get worse, but it doesn't consume me as it did not too long ago. Lately, I've been able to avoid excessive worry causing knots in my stomach, loss of appetite, lost sleep, occasional dry heaves and crying fits. I was a mess.
I've done all kinds of reading online about neuropathy and the different treatments. There is SOOOOOOO much information to consume. It's not easy trying to figure out what would work for an individual. Frankly, I wouldn't want my first choice to be an anti-seizure med like Gabapentin if the pain gets worse. I'd ask my neuro what other avenues we could explore.
I've seen the Youtube videos of chiropractors that claim to have a great success rate with treating neuropathy. I saw one video from a doctor in Wisconsin touting how effective stem cell treatment can be. However, I try to keep my faith in the doctors at the Cleveland Clinic. Will I end up having to go to Mayo or another facility out of state? Who knows?
There are more tests to run which, of course, means being patient as the doctor(s) try (tries) to figure out what's wrong. I try to focus on other things. Yes, I worry that I'll get a pins/needles feeling, numbness, or other symptoms and, if that happens, that it might spread. Just trying to stay positive because what we believe/think in our minds has a great impact on us.
