Wed, May 27 4:40am · Benign Cramp Fasciculation Syndrome in Brain & Nervous System

the Bottle has a tree on it and says STOPS LEG AND FOOT CRAMPS, I take a whole ounce or two when the CHARLEY GETS TO ME…It works….

Apple Cider Vinegar in water in the a.m. THE AMISH have a product that works also for me.Caleb Treez Organic Farm, I take two ounces of this when I get the charley horse, it STOPS IT COLD in less than a minute. THE AMISH use it for their aches and pains after farming all day, it does work. I hopped around in severe pain and even went to the ER once and they did nothing. THE CHARLEY HORSES IN THE BACK OF MY LEGS WAS SCREAMINGLY PAINFUL. You will have to do some stretching exercises off the internet to keep the CHARLEY off….Margaret O'Brien….sufferer of NEUROLOGY in the legs…..You can order this on line…I always get two at a time and keep them by my bed…M.

Sat, Mar 21 4:56pm · Neuropathy: Anyone have any experience with gabapentin? in Neuropathy

Me it left me senseless and losing my memory and mind. I took it for three weeks and quit. I will take my INSULIN and GLUCOPHAGE AND LISINIPRIL…and live with the pain. TRIED EVERY QUACK med and vitamin in the world…NOTHING HELPS WHEN THE ELECTRIC EEL BITES…frequently……END STAGE DIABETES is the pits…………..Neuropathy also…

Sat, Mar 21 4:50pm · Neuropathy: Anyone have any experience with gabapentin? in Neuropathy

You are fortunate, I took it for three weeks and couldn't remember anything. Where I put the laundry, couldn't do my crossword puzzles, and was angry most of the time. I QUIT IT….and just take my INSULIN and my Glucophage and a tiny blood pressure pill LISINOPRIL. AM TRYING the relatively new METANX which is supposed to clean out the veins in the body and flush them out. GABAPENTIN made me forget my own name and a lot of other normal things. I am 76 in a few weeks. WILL JUST LIVE WITH THE HOT SPLASHES OF PAIN in the legs and feet until I find something that works. Had a DOCTOR in the ER tell me the truth, they DO NOT KNOW how to fix anything with late term DIABETES which I have since May of 1995. TWENTY SIX YEARS SOON…it worsens over time. Saw a NEUROLOGIST, he took an MRI of the spine, and gave me GABAPENTIN which I cannot take. Now what? I get everybody is different and responds differently with meds…GUESS that is true…GOOD LUCK…M.,

It made me forget too much and I started losing my hair. I am stopping it COLD….heard TUMS and antacids help the process to wean yourself off of it. THe first thing the doctor says is not to take antacids they make the GABAPENTIN less potent…M.

Hey Wilcy did your memory ever come back? I got diagnosed with NEUROPATHY and the DOCTOR GAVE ME GABAPENTIN..I am forgetting simple things and even what day it is…I want to know if you got your brain back to function normally…I stopped the GABA on my own…Only after one month….I need to think as I take insulin and Glucophage and a blood pressure pill daily. THE GABA gave me some really silly side effects. I stopped it, is my brain damaged permanently? DOES IT COME BACK TO NORMAL? M.

Thanks Helen, Gabapentin twice a day and one at night does take down some of the burning and leg and foot pain.
I am trying the multi PURPOSE but expensive METANX….it has worked on RATS and RABBITS to slow down the NEUROPATHY.
However the DISEASE is eventually fatal, and is progressive. Best I can do for now. THE NEUROLOGIST SENT ME FOR AN MRI
and I will see him on TUESDAY. A new treatment is to hot wire the spine and put a small machine to press a button for pain in the BUTT
I WILL SAY NO…I saw the video…7 people had it done, it only worked for ONE….that is it for now. Thanks for caring…Margaretob

DIagnosed with INSULIN dependent DIABETES in 1995, am 75 and a half now. I get good stick your finger numbers daily with the INSULIN…the NEUROPATHY started OCTOBER 11th when I got serious pain in my legs and feet….Since then two ERS and the NEUROPATHY DOCTOR…so far so good…will see what he says on the 10th of THIS MONTH OF MARCH….
