John
I am learning much from those on this site. Thanks to all for sharing. Can someone say more about b12 and PN and the alcohol and sugar connections. Also I had to change all work shoes to soft — the closest to a dress shoe I can wear with suites in a Florsheim “comfort tech” Instead of being caught at work with no shoes on I can tolerate these for a few hours at a time. Feet are still severely painful but these shoes are doable.
Lyrica is harsh to take and work. How do you get by with the effect on speech and memory?! Take care michael

Hi John, same here, small fiber idiopathic but big time pain came out of nowhere in mid May. yes I was prescribed Lorazepam 1mg for sleep. Also pain meds that I only rarely take as it is tough enough to manage at work with the other meds! Hope you are well.

I was recently diagnosed with PN. Symptoms are more around pain. Both feet have a sensation of being sunburned or raw underneath and I imagined open sores on them (not there). Hands and fingertips tender with sore left palm. intermittent numbness and other pins and needle effects. Just started up a few months ago and went for tests at Vanderbilt and now Mayo. Put me on Lyrica and sleep meds and holding off on Cymbalta and I am trying not to take pain meds. Thought I would join and share where I am coming from. MN
