I have used the Zopec device that John is referring to for quite a few years — it is an electrical stimulus device — I use it about a half hour every morning, sometimes a bit longer — I don't have the pain just the numbness and stiffness in my feet/ankles/lower legs. What I feel it does for me is that it stimulates the blood vessels, and then I don't feel the stiffness as much. I didn't think it was helping, but then when we went on vacation, I didn't take it with me, and then I knew it was helping me

I had problems with dizziness (not caused by meds) — went to my primary care doctor who recommended a vestibular therapist — the treatments were hard (not painful) — what happens is that the tiny, tiny crystals move within the ear canals, and need to moved back to where they belong — after several treatments and home exercises, the dizziness was cured and has not come back — yeah!

Have not heard that metformin can cause neuropathy. More likely, it is the diabetes that caused the neuropathy.
John, thanks for your reply. I'm so concerned that individuals with PN are spending hundreds (even thousands) of dollars to find a cure. We may be able to reduce the symptoms/pain with some meds or devices, but there isn't anything that will 'cure' neuropathy. Please be careful!!
Jun 24, 2019 · Caring for a parent with neuropathy: When's it time to not drive? in Neuropathy
I have had PN for over 20 years, have numbness in feet and somewhat in calves — I continue to drive — I still have good flexion in my ankles (very important) — I know by the pressure on the brakes and accelerator as to how to drive — last year I drove all the way to Tucson and back (from Minneapolis) without incident — my husband was the navigator — I too, can't stand very long and have some balance issues — but that doesn't matter once you are behind the wheel — be a passenger with him and monitor his driving skills — check for other cognitive issues — hope that helps
