Tue, Sep 10 3:13pm · Statins and peripheral neuropathy in Neuropathy

I don't readily see an improvement but if I miss several days in a row my symptoms get worse.

I stopped Crestor 11 months ago and am using an Electronic Nerve Stimulator twice a day and have resolved myself to the fact (after much research and trials) that there is no cure for Neuropathy….period!

Sat, Aug 10 5:01pm · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

My ex so-called Cardiologist prescribed Crestor for my so-called high Cholesterol ( LDL101) for 8 years resulting in a Peripheral Neuropathy diagnosis. If you research the Internet you will find there is a DEFINITE link between Statins and Neuropathy IN SOME PEOPLE. You will also find there is no definitive cure for neuropathy be it pulsating laser, electrical stimulation, injections, medication, etc. That's why you won't find a reputable medical site ever state that there is one. But they'll try many different ways to work around the question "Is there a cure for Neuropathy" without the simple "yes" answer.

Thank you for the correction.

Many doctors today still like to play "God". I was relating a personal experience with a doctor who does not deserve to keep her license. Back in the day doctors hated when patients got used to the Internet and would start to contradict their diagnosis. I'm just sorry I did not do it sooner. You twisted my words around but that's not uncommon for someone in the medical profession. It's not worth the argument. If your both a sufferer and a doctor then I'm sure you've heard the expression "Physician heal thyself"!

I never meant to suggest that Apple Cider Vinegar has any connection to PN. I started using Apple Cider Vinegar approximately 4 months ago and without any other medication toward high cholesterol my numbers have stayed constant. Anything that comes close is better than a statin!

If you'd like to read up on the Apple Cider Vinegar you can go to https://www.google.com/search?q=braggs+apple+cider+vinegar&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b-1. But read the directions carefully and also the reviews. It hasn't 'damaged' me in any way so I continue to take it until I find another Cardiologist that's not into 'pushing drugs'! My main problem is my balance. After extensive research and several doctor and Chiropractor visits I've realized that the Myelin Sheath surrounding the peripheral nerves in my feet have been damaged by taking a statin. Therefore it takes the signal that tells my brain where 'in space' my feet are at any given time too long which causes the imbalance. As far as a cure for PN…the doctors cop-out is that "everyone is different" which absolves them from making any definitive statement about the drugs or the 'cure'.

I stopped taking the generic version of Crestor last October 15, 2018. I now take one tablespoon of Bragg® Organic Raw-Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar with the "Mother" mixed in an 8 oz. glass of apple juice every morning on an empty stomach. Do not take a higher dose or drink it out of the bottle because it could damage your esophagus. You can find it in a 16 oz.bottle in most large grocery stores. You might want to look it up on line. The last time I went to my Nephrologist she said my Cholesterol was "well within the range for my age group".
