Thu, Mar 7 4:36pm · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

Congratulations! Your very lucky. I went to a chiropractor for 13 weeks (twice a week) during which I placed my feet on a vibrating pad for 5 minutes then sat in a chair, legs raised to have a fluctuating, vibrating laser flash on my legs from the knees down for 15 minutes. It didn't help. My feet still get hot, cold and numb but my more frustrating problem is the way it has effected my balance.

Thu, Jan 3 6:02pm · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

I started using the electronic nerve stimulator ReBuilder 2407 on November 20, 2018 for PN. An improvement (if you can call it one) is that I can feel the water when I put my feet into the divided tub. Occasionally I even feel a water temperature difference between my right and left foot. I am up to frequency 4.5 out of 8 for 1/2 hour twice a day. My goal is to walk down my front steps to the house unaided. After all you've been through it might be worth looking into. It is also good for Muscle exercise and to use as a Tens unit (3 in 1 capability).

Nov 13, 2018 · moderate use of alcohol in Neuropathy

I personally have not felt a difference weather I have any alcohol with dinner or not. But my Neuropathy only started around this past January. Lately I have felt a difference the next day if my wife doesn't treat me with the Handheld Pulsating Red Laser Therapy Device. It is harder to walk and my hands hurt. I am still waiting for the Rebuilder 2407 due this week.

I will try to keep you updated. I'm told the unit has shipped and should arrive sometime this week. I have been trying to get this unit since June and now ………..finally!

I am in no way connected with the medical field but after seeing a Neurologist and two Chiropractors it is my honest opinion that medications do not work with Peripheral Neuropathy. I am starting a program using a Durable medical Device called the ReBuilder Model # 2407. It is an electrical nerve stimulator which you use in your home 1/2 hour in the morning and 1/2 hour in the evening and my goal is to be able to walk down my front steps without my wife's assistance by New Years.

My Peripheral Neuropathy started about 10 months ago. I have been to a Neurologist and two Chiropractors and no one will write me a prescription for the ReBuilder Model 2407 Electrical Nerve Stimulator. They all have their own prescription or pulsating laser device and feel threatened by a DMD (Durable Medical Device) that can be used by the patient at home. My feet range from being numb, to hot, to cold when I get out of a hot shower. My hands feel tingly, or ache and sometimes hurt outright.

Thursday I have an appointment with a woman who has been my Cardiologist for the past eight years since my heart attack. Besides three other prescriptions she has me on 5 mg Crestor for the past eight years. I am bringing paperwork to her office (copied from on line sites, one of them being the Mayo Clinic)
which state that one of the side effects of Statins can be Peripheral Neuropathy. I already know that she will claim my PN is caused from diabetes. Among the paperwork I am also bringing a lab report drawn by her office on August 15 which states that my Glucose is 101 and my Cholesterol is 129. Several years ago I was told I was pre-diabetic but have never taken any diabetic medication and was since told there was no need for me to keep testing my blood suger. I stopped taking Crestor on October 15 even though it is said to be dangerous without a doctors advice. Well Thursday I will get her 'advice'!

Oct 13, 2018 · Let's Chat: Ken Burns film, "The Mayo Clinic, Faith - Hope - Science" in Just Want to Talk

I saw this special on PBS by Ken Burns and it was excellent!!! A lifetime acquaintance of mine has a daughter who is a Cardiac charge nurse at the Rochester, Mn. Mayo facility and the similarities are absolutely true.

Oct 13, 2018 · In Search of Relief in Neuropathy

I purchased this low level laser device (from a slightly less expensive site) and my wife uses it on my feet and hands for 15 minutes each, every night. I use it on my hands and she attaches it to a camera tripod to use on my feet while lying on the couch. It has three different light intensities, solid and pulsating light rays and can be timed from 15 to 60 minutes. Here is a video about this Laser device: https://healthcaremarts.com/products/low-level-laser-therapy-device-hand-held.
