Mon, Aug 17 11:40am · Post viral neuropathy in Neuropathy

I have posted on this thread previously, but this sounds timely. My symptoms and subsequent diagnosis with Idiopathic Sensory Neuropathy, I associate with the first Shingrix immunization I received. I will not get the second dose, unless someone can convenience me otherwise. I have no pain, very disrupted sleep, find yoga helps, and have good balance/gait. Once I get out of bed, the symptoms of creepy/crawly things under my skin of my calf’s, disappears. I take 600 mg Gabapentin at bedtime and 25 mg Amitriptyline in the evening. These I have taken for a year. When I entered this site, I was wondering if anyone found improvement or a diminished numbness in my feet/legs. I have not found any posting to support this.

Mon, May 4 10:25am · Neuropathy: Anyone have any experience with gabapentin? in Neuropathy

I have sensory neuropathy in my feet and lower legs. I started Gabapentin 11 months ago and have had an abundance of relief from it. I take 600 mg at bedtime and am able to get a good night’s sleep. The symptoms I feel it relieves includes the achy/pain in my legs at night as well as the creepy/crawly feeling under the skin of my calfs at night. Once I am up in the morning, any/all symptoms go away. I have good balance and gait, and get good relief from yoga that stretches.

Just had a friend tell me yesterday that one month after the first Shingrix shot, she developed shingles, It has been a mild case and a pharmacist/family member, recommended she be sure to get the 2nd shot but at 6 months to a year later…not too close to the first one. So many varying pieces of info out there.

Is any healthcare system gathering data re the Shingrix vaccine and side effects?

Sat, Feb 22 12:00pm · Shingrix and peripheral neuropathy in Neuropathy

I have been surfing this site for info re ShingRix. Immediately after my first ShingRix, on March 12, 2019, I had what I thought were to be symptoms or Restless Leg. It was five months, a sleep study, and a myriad of blood tests before a neurologist did an EMG and said I have Idiopathic sensory neuropathy of unknown etiology. I don’t feel it has progressed beyond my toes and lower legs. I am taking Gabapentin, 600 mg at bedtime and Amitriptyline 25mg at 6 p.m. I have never increased this. I sleep well 95% for the time, do have a hard time getting up early in the morning, but do not feel the need for a nap during the day. One of my immune test results is a bit off but no treatment for this located. Based on my history, I am unwilling to have the 2nd ShingRix. Yoga helps a lot. My balance is good as is my gait. Any thoughts? Thanks from this 77.5 yr old female.

@johnbishop, Sensory Neuropathy differs from Peripheral Neuropathy in the nerve root innervation and body parts effected. Hope someone can help me with a more specific explanation.

Immediately after my first Shingrix shot I developed sensory neuropathy, not peripheral neuropathy. I am reluctant to get the 2nd Shingrix.

Sat, Jan 11 8:50am · FGFR3 ANTIBODY in Neuropathy

I see this is an old thread, but the question asked alerted me to two things found on my blood word, Borderline B-12 (for which I am now taking B-12, 3000 mcg, sublingual), and an elevated anti-HDS which is actually associated with atonal sensory neuropathies. The sensory neuropathy has been my operating diagnosis. I could not find any info on-line about possible treatment for the elevated anti-HSD. Is there any information you have on this? Thanks.
