Mar 16, 2019 · Living with Neuropathy - Welcome to the group in Neuropathy

Hi–I know I have tried the maneuver to get crystals back in alignment through my Dr and also at home using the technique. I know it helps a lot of people. Unfortunately, it didnt help me so I started youtube searching… I came across this Dr that does a technique that uses acupressure you can do yourself. For some reason, that DID help me.,There are all kinds of information about different techniques on there, and Ill try anything to see if it works. if one type doesnt, then try another.. 🙂

Thank you–for all the advice! I haven't seen any Dr besides my regular Dr , and the guy that did the nerve test (he was kind of a ding bat–kept saying to me" well, you didnt want to live forever, did you? Maybe this is a blessing in disguise"…so I never went back. I live in a remote, very remote place in Michigan, hard to get good medical care unless I travel hundreds of miles and Im retired now , live by myself so I have to watch my $ a bit. Michigan is taxing my retirement (SS and pension) quite a bit. trying to try a few things first. Will read and study what you gave to me though. I found out years ago when I had thyroid disease that kept me sick for over a year, that before I go anywhere I research it myself. You almost have to.

Yes, I was diagnosed about five/six years ago in my feet and hands. I had problems for years before that as I was a meter reader for a major utility company in Michigan (walking up to ten miles a day often for 25.5 years). There is a history of diabetes in my family and I was pre diabetic. I wasnt placed on drugs yet, but through a low carb diet my A1C is down to 5.5. Before diagnosed my feet were really painful. then about ten years ago I noticed some tingling, etc. Long story short, they put me on Gab about 5 years ago, 300 mg. didnt do anything so they increased to 600….same results. Dr just called and says he has to see me, so appt Fri. Gab is now considered a controlled drug I guess. I want to get off it and this last week have went down to 300 a day until I speak with the Dr. At this time, my feet are uncomfortable but not too much pain, at times slight shooting pain but numbness is up to my knees in varying degrees. Hand; the thumb pulls into my palm and I have to pull it back in place. I live in a very small town and the Drs leave something to be desired…
