What Treatment Has Helped With Neuropathy?
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

My doctor prescribed Gabapentin to help, but the neuropathy doesn’t seem much better. I am trying to build strength and not need a walker to get around since my hospital,stay for pneumonia, but the “pillow feet” make me uneasy. Both feet feel numb.
Has anyone found something that helps more with the neuropathy?

I was on gabapentin soon after SCT but found it ineffective. I believe I did not understand how and when to taste it, My solution for foot neuropathy is ….. warm socks. My mild neuropathy is aggravated by cold. My warm hunting socks makes it go away. 😃 ymmv

My regular Physician order me Amitriptylin 10 mgm it a nerve pill, it helps with the neuropathy of my feet and hands..I sleep at night and wake up refreshing pain slowly getting better.. B-12 didn't work for my neuropathy, but I take for energy two times a day.

I stop taking the Neurontin because my Oncologist recommend Physical Therapy. Dr. Kathy showed me how to find the nerve in my feet and hands. She began working with me with balance challenges, strengthen, stretches, and variety of manipulation movements to my hands and feet. Now don't get me wrong my left-hand trembles at times. I hope this helps!😍
