Mon, May 18 9:35am · Living with Neuropathy - Welcome to the group in Neuropathy

I'm glad it might be of some help to you. I guess that is what this group is all about. I first used it in physical therapy about once or twice per week. I had spoken with a physical therapist who was retired, but he used to work at the facility and he claimed it helped many of his patients. I believed his testimonial since he would not benefit in any way. I did this for a about two months, and then bought a foot bath unit for myself. I did it once per day for about two weeks straight. I did not notice any significant reduction in pain. I still use it once in a while because it feels good when I am using it. Maybe I didn't try it for a long enough period. I also tried the Inspirastar Frequency Specific Microcurrent machine (FSM). It is similar to the ReBuilder, but it is at a much lower current. It supposedly finds a specific frequency to heal your nerves. I tried this for a month (rented it) without any pain relief. It gets pretty discouraging trying all of these "cures" without any good results. I have neuropathy in my feet, legs, hands and arms from a failed cervical steroid shot. I also have collapsed discs in my neck. Maybe it will help with your problem. Good luck!

I have tried a device called the Rebuilder. It is supposed to retrain your nerves to operate normally, instead of sending pain signals. I have tried it off and on for over a year, and I cannot say that it helps. I have terrible burning pain in my feet and hands, and it does feel a little better when I am doing it (only 30 minutes, twice a day, max), but it does not help when it is not on. A physical therapist used it and then I bought one (about $1k). You can google it and find out about it.

Thu, Mar 26 3:38pm · Anyone have experience with Baclofen for back and neuropathy pain? in Neuropathy

I just sent an E-mail today to my doctor today. I think I saw the article you mentioned. That is what started the thought that maybe the Baclofen was the cause. I always hate telling a doctor that the medicine may be making it worse. I think the doctors want the patients to stay on the medicine as long as possible to make sure it isn't helping. However, it is hard when you are already in unbearable pain. Thanks for the input.

Thu, Mar 26 9:01am · Anyone have experience with Baclofen for back and neuropathy pain? in Neuropathy

My doctor put me on Baclofen to treat severe muscle tightness in my back. I have been on 5mg twice a day for about four days now, and my back and neuropathy pain seem to be getting worse, not better. I have severe neck and upper back pain and neuropathy pain in my feet, legs, hands, and arms. Has anyone had success or worse symptoms?

Fri, Feb 28 1:30pm · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

I have been dealing with chronic neck and back pain, and severe, painful neuropathy in my feet, legs, hands, and arms. I live in central PA and have been trying to find a good, caring, comprehensive pain management doctor/group, with no success. Can anyone recommend a good pain management group in Pennsylvania? I am willing to drive to any place in the state to get relief.

Wed, Feb 26 7:21am · Ideas for pain relief from Small Fiber Neuropathy (SFN) in Neuropathy

Has anyone tried an opioid drug called Buprenorphine? From what I read, it is supposed to be very strong, but less addictive and you don't have to keep increasing the dose. There is an article on the NIH website that claim over 80% substantial pain relief.

I have read and been told by doctors that a high B6 level can cause neuropathy. I would look into that.

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