Yes i have had peripheral nephropathy for 5 years now. I am a 45 year old male and they tell me they cant tell me why i have it or how i got it. it is so frustrating and not only affects me but my family. I am thinking of doing a nerve block, has anyone on here ever tried it?
This started as my feet were numb with no pain and then the pain would come and go. Then the numbness got deeper, if that makes since and the pain was constant. I was suffering with this for about two years before my diagnosis. My dr has literally tested me for everything and aside from ISFN I am a healthy 45 year old male. It all started about five to six years ago.
@lisalucier i take an opioide and Lyrica, which the combo of the two give me some relief, its not 100% but at least i can live life. i have tried some pain creams which also helped but for only 30 minutes or so. i just really wish my Doctors or anyone can tell me why i have this, it is so frustrating that they cant and that there is no cure.
My pain is everything from burning to sharp lightning bolts to pins and needles to aching. my feet are around 75% numb and the numbness runs up the outside of each leg to my knee. My pain is always and it sucks. Thanks for your kind words and it is GREAT to know that i am not alone ( not that i want anyone else to have ISFN)
