5 days ago · Ideas for pain relief from Small Fiber Neuropathy (SFN) in Neuropathy

The DMSO cream works really well on my burning feet. I was using very expensive compound cream before and this seems to do just as well.

The DMSO cream helped the burning/pain in my feet. I had to cut the elastic around the top of my socks to even be able to wear them! I use the cream after my shower in the morning and it really helps with the sensitivity.

I had the same problem….just the fabric of my socks was painful. I had to cut the top bands just so I could wear them! The DMSO helps numb that pain, and then I could wear the compression socks….it keeps the swelling away from your feet which I think helps with the pain. The cream is sold on Amazon, and I bought a 6 pack of over-the-calf socks from there also, then cut them a few inches above the ankle so there would be no band at the top. Hope this helps!

1000 mg daily of Evening of Primrose, also taking 600mg ALA 2x day. And the DMSO cream really helps with immediate relief Here is a web site about this…..https://www.salubrainous.com/evening-primrose-oil-for-neuropathy/

I think the depression and the pain go hand in hand. It's one thing to have pain from something that will eventually be resolved, quite another to think that there is no end in sight.

I just wanted to pass along some ideas for those of you with idiopathic small fiber neuropathy. I am a 60-year-old female in excellent health other than the onset of this about a year ago. I do not have diabetes or any other detectable health issues.
I started some new things a few weeks ago and this week I have had some remarkable relief. I am not sure if what I have done is why, or which thing might have helped, but still wanted to pass this along just to give some of you some things to try.

I wear compression socks. This seems to help with the pain and pressure I feel in my feet and ankles.
I started taking Evening of Primrose oil twice a day.
I have cut my caffeine intake by at least two-thirds and now drink mostly green or black tea. I had heard that caffeine could irritate nerves…worth a shot.
I exercise, which I have been doing for over 20 years. I think it improves circulation which I think really helps with nerve health.
I added niacin. I will aid in blood flow, also good for circulation.
I use a cream called DMSO which i put on my feet and ankles in the morning (numbs the pain)

I don’t know if any of this could be helpful for you or not, But I seem greatly improved recently……I have tried everything and am always looking for new things to try in order to function with this awful condition.
I am still taking 600mg of Gabapentin 3 times a day and 20 mg Citalopram once a day and have been for 9 months. I do not take any other medications.

Blessings to all of you and I hope there is a cure some day. I intend to keep looking for solutions that do not require medications!

I feel the same way! The gabapentin makes me so tired that the coffee/tea is what keeps me moving forward.

I've been on ALA for a while. Still hoping!
