go to Zopec medical foot neuropathy treatment system — asyou will note, it does not cure pain,, but does advocate a number of other conditions

Sun, Feb 23 9:03am · Living with Neuropathy - Welcome to the group in Neuropathy

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

Mon, Feb 17 7:20am · Pain Pill Addiction and Neuropathy - Looking for Guidance in Neuropathy

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.

driving has no effect on neuropathy — something else is creating the problem if you feet are worse when driving, but not neuropathy

Jul 6, 2019 · Anyone go to a Mayo Clinic? in 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
