@oldshep Hi Larry I have idiopathic progressive peripheral neuropathy. It ain't no fun as you know. I do not have diabetes and tests do not confirm an immune system reason. I did score on the ANA blood test which is indicative of an autoimmune disease, but further tests done by a rheumatoid doctor set that aside?? I have found that if you go to 4 different doctors you get 4 different diagnosis. I know the neuropathy and IDIOPATHIC lymphedema is on target. I am assured of that when I look at the swelling of my leg and feel the nerve pain in my feet and legs. Someone on here said it is idiopathic because the idiots can't figure it out and they don't want to try. Sounds right to me. Are you being seen by a neurologist? When a doctor can identify the reason for neuropathy it can be quite manageable. Neuropathy is caused by another physical problem and when that problem cannot be identified then all that is treated is the neuropathy. There is not to my knowledge a fix for neuropathy, but rather ways of curbing the pain and addressing the problems that the neuropathy provides us with. The neurologist I am currently working with is addressing B12 as an issue and has prescribed weekly B12 shots. From research on neuropathy it was found that lack of B12 or the inability of the body to absorb it properly can cause neuropathy. You may want to discuss this with your doctor. I don't know how many people in this group have what their doctor refers to as idiopathic neuropathy. Seek all the information you can about peripheral neuropathy and find a doctor who doesn't just throw his/her hands up and prescribe Gabapentin. Gabapentin is the drug of choice prescribed by doctors. I am not saying it is a bad medication, but there are many other choices. I take 600 mg daily of Gabapentin and 50 mg of Amitriptyline. Maybe I would be in more pain if I didn't take it is all I can say. I hope I helped some. There are many people on this site who can offer much more. We all share our experiences. Good luck.
