It is good to hear the spine stimulator worked for you. What was the new medicine that is helping you now?

4 days ago · Laser Therapy for Neuropathy in Neuropathy

I also bought an inexpensive laser (~$150) for neuropathy after receiving therapy at a physical therapist for awhile. I can't say that it helped at all. I don't know if that means that laser therapy doesn't work or the unit I bought is not the real thing. It supposedly has the right wavelengths and power levels. Or maybe it just doesn't work for my type of neuropathy.

Dec 19, 2019 · Stem cell treatment for peripheral neuropathy - any good? in Neuropathy

I went to a stem cell presentation by CoreMedical, also. The presenter was not a doctor or scientist, and he did not provide any kind of good scientific explanations for how it works. The CoreMedical doctor is just a chiropractor. Everything I have read after the presentation is that there are many so-called stem cell clnics springing up to try to make money off of the name. The research says it may work, but it could also have many bad side effects like cancer. They just haven't done enough research yet. You can try if you want, but I would be very careful. I made an appointment with CoreMedical, but then cancelled after reading more about it. Good luck.

I just read your post because I was trying to do some research on stem cell therapy. What is intraneural facilitation? Did you have it yet? Did it help?

Nov 17, 2019 · Anyone Tried Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy? in Neuropathy

The Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) uses electrode pads that you put on your body. It doesn't work by jamming the pain signal. It sends a "normal" nerve signal to your brain so that it retrains it to not sense pain in that area. No surgery needed. I have neuropathy in feet, legs, hands, arms, and even my mouth.

Thanks for the links, John. I saw the second one on CytoQuel. I will let you know how it goes. So far I have had two days of less nerve pain.

Nov 16, 2019 · Anyone Tried Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy? in Neuropathy

I went to Lancaster County Osteopathic and Integrative Health in Gap, PA to see if they could help with my severe neuropathy pain in my feet, legs, hands, and arms. They recommended an InspirStar Frequency Specific Microcurrent machine. I am renting a unit for a month ($250) to see if it helps. It is supposed to target specific areas by applying a microcurrent signal at specific low frequencies. Has anyone else tried this? Did it help? They also recommended a supplement called CytoQuel that is supposed to help reduce inflammation. Has anyone tried this?

Nov 2, 2019 · Ideas for pain relief from Small Fiber Neuropathy (SFN) in Neuropathy

I had three treatments in physical therapy (days apart) on my feet and hands. It seemed to help, so I bought a unit. Since then I have tried it once or twice a day for about ten days. So far, it hasn't seemed to help. In fact, it may be making it worse. I am going off of it for a few days to see if I notice a difference. I submitted the cost to my insurance, so I will see soon if they will pay for it. I couldn't get an answer from my insurance company when I called them. I will keep everyone updated.
