For me b-12 made things worse. Make sure you have your levels checked. To much b-12 can aggravate the nerves.

Stop Drinking and be patient. Some damage may be permanent but not all. Nerves take time to heal.

Mon, Jan 14 8:50pm · My experience with Small Fiber Neuropathy in Neuropathy

I to have small fiber neuropathy due to drinking and being prescribed flagyl for an infection.
When I first stopped drinking my feet hurt, burned,felt bruised on the bottom. I was crippled. I started researching and found that taking B vitamins would help . WARNING they will help if you are deficient I was not and it set my feet and legs on Fire. I was in such pain I contemplated suicide. Always consult a doctor never self medicate even with vitamins. I stopped taking the vitamins and was prescribed cymbalta. I could not handle the side effects of cymbalta so I switch to amitriptyline. Between amitriptyline and physical therapy to strengthen my feet and legs I have got my life back. If a doctor tells you that you are going to have to live with the pain see someone else. There is hope out there. I spent thousands of dollars and saw multiple doctors before I found any relief. I just had nerve decompression surgery on my right leg . Six weeks post OP I have increased strength and the constant vibration that I was experiencing is gone. It's still to early to tell if the surgery is worth it .
DON'T GIVE UP HOPE
