Mon, Jan 20 7:29am · Statin discontinuation due to potential neuropathy cause, alternatives in Neuropathy

I also developed neuropathy… slowly.. starting with "sock under toes" feeling. Now in feet and lower legs… but like John's.. some numbness but no pain.
Had been on statins.. high dose for approx. 20 years. No other possible causes could be discovered so with Dr's agreement I dropped statin almost a year ago. No improvement.. but not worse. Functional medicine Dr. recommended taking bergemot, which I've been doing. Seems they think this has a mild effect in lowering LDL.

Jul 10, 2019 · Statins and peripheral neuropathy in Neuropathy

I don’t think anyone suggested apple cider vinegar for peripheral neuropathy. The discussion was re: lowering cholesterol. I for one am not content to wait for convincing scientifically proven evidence while my neuropathy worsens. I too think it involves statins and I also know that there may be other ways to address cholesterol. I appreciate every post on this list and would like to hear if something helps someone.. ..even if it involves an “n of one”!

Have been off the statins for about 3 months. Still numbness in feet and lower legs.. no better but no worse. Would be interested to see if the apple cider vinegar is helpful with cholesterol!
Mine isn’t real high but I did have a partially blocked artery many years ago and have been on high dosage statin for past twenty years. Numbness slowly developing starting with the Sock under toes feeling. Not totally numb.. kind of like John describes his.
