3 days ago · Anyone else with PN and night sweats out there? in Neuropathy

I wear wool socks to sleep in, but have moved from warm pajamas to a cooler cotton gown because of night sweats. The pain in my feet keeps me awake when they are cold. Now I sleep all night, but wake up sopping wet in the mornings. I lose 3 to 4 pounds during the night! Does anyone else have a similar problem? The only med I take at night is 2 Benadryl, and I do run the overhead fan all night. House temperature is set at 67. I do take Cymbalta every morning with my Metformin and Pioglitzen and Lisinopril. My blood pressure is great, usually around 123 / 66 or so… The night sweats are something new to me, having begun only a couple of weeks ago.. I haven't seen my doctor again, but dread having to open one more can of worms in regard to my health issues..

John, did the coconut oil and frankincense plus other things mixture help with your peripheral neuropathy? I do hope so!!
I'm still using the F&M Neuropathy essential oil on my burning feet and it has made a difference in my pain and ability to walk.
I'm about to add Hyland's Restful Leg pills at the suggestion of some on here… Always hoping for improvement and relief for
all of us!

Dec 19, 2019 · Neuropathy and depression and anxiety in Neuropathy

My doctor is fully aware of my anxiety issues and I have been taking Cymbalta for several years.. Before that I was on several different similar meds that changed every few years.. Some made me sweat and be unable to wear sleeves or socks, so I just dealt with that until we would try something else.. Life is a roller coaster all the time… Today I'm highly anxious about my interactions with friends, doubting my social abilities and afraid that I've upset some by saying something they misunderstood.. it seems that I open my mouth and say what I'm thinking without being able to consider how it might affect them.. but I never know how I'm being perceived and making people want to avoid me.. I feel like I'm always being misunderstood and probably should just keep away from everyone… I don't think that I'm being paranoid, but truly just don't perceive social interactions correctly… and meanwhile I deal with the jingly tingly irritating feeling in my feet and lower legs… along with the inner turmoil of being so on edge and fearful of being around others… I worry all the time…

These darned burning tingling feet and legs…. I wish there was some good way to keep my anxiety level down, because the more anxious I become the more my discomfort gets.. Makes it almost impossible to get any sleep! Help?!!

Nov 28, 2019 · Ideas for pain relief from Small Fiber Neuropathy (SFN) in Neuropathy

burningfeetinphoenix… Your name says so much about your poor hot feet! I identify with you since I call myself Hotfooted… Erythromelalgia has been a bugaboo for my feet for several years, then along came neuropathy to increase my discomfort… Shucks! I will mention what has helped me the most, although it doesn't make a difference for many people.. I use a rubbing oil that I purchase from Amazon called Frankincense and Myrrh NEUROPATHY… It calms the burning hotness in my feet and eases the crazy tingling of neuropathy for me.. Maybe it will help you… I hope so… Stay off your feet as much as possible and keep them elevated.. And pedaling a stationary bicycle some every day is the only exercise I can do… I can walk around in my house now, but couldn't for about a year because of the pain in my feet.. Blessings on you…

Nov 28, 2019 · Creams or oils to help alleviate the pain? in Neuropathy

For the type of neuropathy that I have the Frankincinse and Myrrh NEUROPATHY rubbing oil from Amazon works very well… I have Erythromelalgia along with neuropathy and I mix the oil with a good face cream. It eases the crazy feelings in my feet and ankles and decreases the burning redness for me. I know that it doesn't work for everybody, but am grateful to have discovered it as it has been the only thing that has made a difference for me. Good luck to you…

Sep 13, 2019 · Does Vitamin B-12 help with neuropathy of the feet? in Neuropathy

The foot drop symptoms you mentioned are new to me.. I didn't know that was affecting me, just that when I get tired from walking my feet sorta slap along and I find myself taking small steps.. Guess I'd better mention this to my doctor next time.. Thanks for including the information about it.. I'll check out the Cleveland Clinic's info, too..
