14 hours ago · Laser ? in Neuropathy

I think I remember that some of you posted about laser treatment for neuropathy but I have looked through 6 months of topics and can't find anything about it. Have any of you had it and how did it go? I have acute sensory neuropathy and restless leg syndrome in case that matters. There is a doctor here who does it, I have an appointment on Friday to discuss it. Thanks ! Peggy

Thank you, John. I took Human Biology, Anatomy, and Nutrition but that was 10 years ago; new research may have yielded new results that I am unaware of. At that time, I learned that the B vitamins are water soluble, whatever our body doesn't use gets excreted in the urine harmlessly; B Vitamins do not build up in the body, as do oil soluble vitamins, A, D, E.

My doctor told me to take B12. Is it toxic too?

I've tried all the holistics, did nothing. None of my doctors have mentioned taking steroids for neuropathy. I've taken them for asthma and had bad side effects: bloating, nervousness, metallic taste in the mouth, thrush.

That's a lot. I hope that brilliant researchers get busy inventing better medicine for us. When anything new is invented, we'll hear about here before we hear about it anywhere else, right? (To me, "Better" means something that takes away the pain and numbness but doesn't make us sleepy or fat).

I read online that 24 million people in the US suffer from neuropathy. Do you think that's accurate?

2 days ago · Driving with neuropathy in Neuropathy

Mine gets worse whenever I'm not up and about, walking or running. The morning is the worst. I drive about 5 hours regularly – just the last few months my feet and legs have been getting numb and painful after about an hour so I make a pit stop, hobble around until the stiffness is gone, then get back on the road. I don't know why, I just know that it does. My neurologist said that it's Restless Leg Syndrome which quite a few of us seem to have.
