Aug 31, 2011 · Need Help..peripheral neuropathy, chronic widespread pain and weakness in Neuropathy

Hello. I’m hoping to obtain help from either a Mayo Clinic patient or Mayo Clinic Staff. I am 47 years old, female, married. For the past 10 years, I’ve been suffering with the diseases/symptoms that I have listed on my profile. However, the ones that are the most painful and have left me disabled are the peripheral neuropathy (nerve pain in both feet,legs,hands,arms), chronic widespread pain and weakness. fibromylagia and chronic fatigue, . I’ve been from doctor to doctor, with a host of med;s and the latest is a alternative doctor who has taken me off of gluten and dairy. It’s been 3 months abstained from gluten and dairy but to no avail… my nerve pain and chronic fatigue and everything else remains! She tells me it takes about a year for me to abstain from gluten and dairy for my body to begin to heal and my symptoms to to heal therefore, my pain can go away. Is this true? I’m now considering a trip to Mayo Clinic because I don’t know what to believe anymore..I’m desperate to find out why my pain continues. My med’s are: 600 mg. Neurontin 3 x day, Fentanyl Patch 75 mcg., Topamax 150 mg., Plaquenil 100 mg, Armor thyroid 60 mcg., Herbal Vitamins for Andrenal Glands
