Aug 19, 2016 · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

Hello to all you asked about my visit with the neurologist. Great visit. Loved the doctor. She sings and plays the violin and we plan to go see her chorale group in concert sometime. Oh, about the medical problem??? Just kidding. She put me on Gabapenten and it is helping greatly. However, I am hightly susceptible to all sleepy type drugs and it knocks me for a loop. Started me on 300 mg which they say is the lower end of the totem pole but I hope I don’t have to go any higher. Taking at night and it is knocking me out. Tried twice to take it in the morning as she prescribed and I stumble around all day. Maybe I’ll get used to it. My son is on it and says he can’t tell he’s taking it. My son, by the way, had a heart attack over the last weekend but was in the hosital when it happened so he is prefectly fine now. They put in a stent and he is home now and driving today. They plan to do neurological tests on me but they can’t get to me for 2 months so we’re at a standstill. However, the Gabapenen is helping with the burning nerves so I can hang on. Thanks for all your interest. I hope all of you are doing well and seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Emilyanne

I would like to thank each of you who replied to my post. I have ready them all carefully and will go back and make detailed notes as I have time. They are all very interesting and it is reassuring to know I am not alone. You feel that way when you seem to be suffering from something that is a little out of the norm. People tend to consider you a hypochondriac sometimes if you don’t have a “normal” disease.” I was lucky and got an appt today with a nerologist for the first time. My appt had been for NOV but there was a cancellation and my faithful husband/caregiver had been checking everyday so what a blessing. God bless you all with a beautiful day.

Hello Rabbit 10 and others who suffer with non specific neuropathy Just began dealing with it several months ago and so far no relief. Still waiting to see a neurologist. It is interesting that many also have restless leg syndrone which I have and which came first with me. Am taking Requip for that and it seems to work if I take it in time at night. The burning nerves is in my feet and legs, mostly left, is spreading to my left arm and hand now. Nothing seems to help that. Am taking note of what seems to help others. Am 76. Had spinal stenosis surgery and thought the numbness and nerve damage was from that problem. Still may be but why is it spreading? Lots of questions but no answers so far. Hope to learn from you guys.
