Sep 30, 2018 · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

I took Gabapentin for over a year and it did nothing for my pain. But I did sleep like a baby!

Thank you, Colleen! My name is Anna and i have been battling symptoms of neuropathy since 2007. I was diagnosed with distal symmetrical sensory neuropathy May 17th 2016. My symptoms are burning pain in My feet when I walk. I do not have numbness or tingling or pain at rest. My doctor ordered orthotics for me and wanted me to take Lyrica and Amitriptyline. I chose to try diet, exercise and supplements first. My A1C has never been above 6.1 and at this time it is 5.4. So, my sugar is well controlled.

In August of 2018 the pain in my feet had become unbearable. I made the decision to try the Lyrica and Amitriptyline. The results were horrific. I was on 150 mg twice a day and 25 mg at night of Amitriptyline. I tried to maintain this dose and was on it for six weeks. I felt like a zombie! I spent most of my time sitting or in bed. I couldn't drive and it was impossible to cook or clean. I stopped both medications gradually but still feel the effects of both. It's obvious that that these drugs are not tolerated by my system.

I have a friend who had the adult stem cell procedure done one year ago. She has no pain. However, her insurance did not cover the procedure. I would do anything to be able to walk again but I'm having trouble finding reputable information on the internet about stem cell procedure. I happened upon your website and here I am!

I'm interested in any information I can gather here. I want to walk with my family again!

Thank you for adding Me!
