Try home remedies for neuropathy

Full story: San Gabriel Valley Tribune

Dear Dr. Gott: I have received information from a friend that you have a theory that spraying nitroglycerin on the hands and feet of a neuropathy patient may be of some help.

I have severe pain and I have tried everything. The only thing that helps is Tramacet. I could take 2 pills every three hours to totaly rid myself but only take 1 in the morning and 1 at night to take the edge off. It is no cure but it eases the pain.

I was diagnosed with polyneuropathy 6 yrs ago. I am NOT diabetic. I tell you there are ALTERNATIVES out there but one has to search & research the internet to find them. I finally found a natural supplement that worked wonders after several trial & errors of other options.However,unfortuneately this product has been discontinued. I have a Plan B & C which I plan to go to when I run out of tis product I am currently using.

I had tried Neurotin for about a month and altho it helped the symptoms it was awful to take and hard to get off of, but I finally did and thank GOD there are natural and homopathic remedies out there.

My primary care doc is a Naturopath and he had me do a detox which brought temporary relief as he felt heavy metals in the body were possibly the cause.

I pray all of you will take some time and Google natural and homopathics for neuropathy. Its out there to find and I pray you will consider it.

I had to go to the ER one night , and the dr.I saw has neuropathy. It so helps to be able to talk with someone who understands what you are going through. Sometimes when I tell people what I am experiencing, I feel like a hypacondriac (sp?). Also, I wear Crocs. The nubbies help increase blood flow, therefore creating new nerve endings. Also, Merrells. They provide good airflow. Here lately I have been able to keep lotion on my feet and that helps. For me night time is the worst! When I lay down, my feet have me to the point of crying. God Bless! I am praying!:)
My husband is on both Lyrica and gabapentin, still doesn't stop the pain. Good luck!

Someone said that Vics Rub is good for diabetic neuropathy, It is also good for toe nail fungus. Just rub on your toe nails every night.

You can also get relief from taking 2 bottles of water and get them cold and roll your feet across them. Freezing the water works best because ice is a natural pain reliever.

Some of these are listed on the Mayo Clinic web site . I am not bothered at night and find that if I am faithful to the above I have days that my feet give me little trouble . Works for me for the last 6 months . Hope someone finds this helpful .

This^^. I've been diagnosed with a severe neuropathy and the thought of any one or anything touching my feet is beyond me. Even pedicures are too much most times.

How on earth does he stand you touching them? I was diagnosed in Jan '08 and I have had a really tough time.
My diagnosis came a year and a half after I had been complaining to my Dr. about my feet hurting. We just thought that it was where I had been working so much. Sometimes it feels as if the tops of my toes have been cut off and exposed. And just forget the shower head! The water hurts! I will keep him in my prayers. I had heard that vitamins which support the nervous system help, but I haven't seen much of a difference. God Bless!

I've been on Gabapentin, Lyrica, and Cymbalta and none of them have worked. Looking for anything to give me some relief at this point. I've been dealing with this for quite some time and anything natural would be great.

Thank you so much! As a mother of three, I am not allowed to be "out of commission." I have heard that the Lyrica would help, I guess I just didn't realize how much. Could you feel a change pretty quickly? What you taking before? The Neurontin is all I have taken and it zombifies me. Thanks again! Many Blessings!
I have found that Lyrica really works so much better than the Neurontin, for long term use. I totally understand how you feel and although it's comforting to know I'm not alone, it's most definitely bittersweet:/ Much love and many prayers.-Dave-

I was diagnosed with idiopathic peripheral neuropathy approx. 5 years ago. I'm male, age 61. Working full time. I find some relief from Lyrica and Tramadol. My Dr. tells me that I will "outgrow" the dosages. I'm very interested in these alternatives. Is there any way to share dosages, frequency, life disruption to commit to the regime. I have many days with frequent stabbing pain. Almost every night. Usually need sleeping pill to get any sleep at all. All the ingredients you describe make sense. I would just like to know how much and how often. Prayers and support to all those of you who suffer with this. I've tried acupuncture with mixed success.

I take 60 mg of cymbalta a day it helps a lot but sometimes I take lidocaine and prilocaine cream it numbs the pain. I have tried lyrica couldn't take because of kidneys. The cymbalta seems to help the best.

B vitamins and alpha lipoid acid are said to repair nerve damage. By the time you buy all of them separately you are in debt. There are a couple of neuropathy formulas out there. I am using the neuropathy support formula from online I am three weeks in and I am hoping to see more relief soon. Capscaisine (zostrix) is the strongest strength I have found over the counter. It helps to numb the feet at night.
