Aug 11, 2018 · Living with Neuropathy - Welcome to the group in Neuropathy

Hi John, please go to You Tube and take a look at Dr. Michael Johnson’s video briefings on stem cell treatments for neuropathy and the many studies he identifies for this treatment. Dr. Johnson runs a treatment facility in Appleton, WI. Some amazing stuff.

Thank you John, many companies are stating that they have successfully treated PN using stem cells.

Hi Colleen,
I have had Neuropathy in my left foot and left leg from stenosis. Tried many treatments and two lumbar laminectomies with little success. Now I have attended several seminars about stem cell treatments couple with other changes concerning meds, nutrition, laser treatments, EWOT, PNRT, vibration. Do you know if these treatments are effective or just failed treatments? Most of these treatments, even in combination are very expensive and most not covered by insurance.
Just something separate. How do I find responses to my posts when I return to this site?

Jul 24, 2018 · Gabapentin use for neuropathy in Neuropathy

Hello Superwife, I have been taking Gabapentin for several years at 400mg x 4 daily. I have a rash (no open wound) on my Neuropathy leg and my dermatologist prescribed a topical cream (Triamcinolone Acetonide) and that helps my irritation. Not sure if that would help your open wounds but I hope you find a solution. Bob

Good morning all, I’ve posted here before and have been tolerating burning numbness in my left foot and left lower leg. My neopathy was caused by stenosis in my lower back. After two lumbar surgeries, I’m left with the neopathy in my left foot. I still have muscle strength so I can walk well but the pain is quite strong when walking or standing. I’ve had this problem for 10 years. I take Gabapentin at 2,000mg per day and use a topical OTC cream by MagniLife. I’ve also tried the large doseage of vitamins called “The Protocol”. Lately my burning pain has increased. Does anyone have a similar problem where the burning foot pain increases over time? I’m also wondering if the Gabapentin effectiveness decreases with time. If anyone can give me some feedback, I’d appreciate it. Thank you.

I had two back surgeries to relieve the impengment on my nerves near L4 – L5. It helped a lot but have pain and numbness in my left leg and foot. I think the surgeries help me quite a bit.

Hello everyone. I have had burning, stinging pain in my left foot and lower leg for 10 years caused by lumbar stenosis. I have tried many medications and have had 2 back surgeries. For me, 400 mg of Gabapentin helps along with an OTC cream by Magnilife that I apply to my foot and lower leg. I recently am trying a HEMP oil CBD extract the a couple of friends use. I think it is also helping. I still have my leg strength but if I walk to far the pain get worse. I also focus on other hobbies and interests to keep my mind off the pain as well as elevating my leg. I hope this helps.

Hi Jim, I have a similar problem but only in my left foot and leg that started 8 years ago. I had burning pain in both buttocks, both legs, and both feet caused by lumbar stenosis. After two spinal surgeries I’m left with this burning pain and numbness in my left foot and lower leg. I have tried most non opiate medications and now on Gabapentin at 1600 mg/day. I am trying the Protocol of large doses of vitamins and supplements. It can be found on a private FB site called Solutions to Peripheral Neuropathy. I’m just started trying this. Maybe it could help you too. I pray it helps. Bob
