What Treatment Has Helped With Neuropathy?

What Treatment Has Helped With Neuropathy?

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

I was told to take vitamin B-12 pills... I take 1,000 mg in the morning and another at night and have zero neuropathy!

Just a heads up on gabapentin, when my wife was diagnosed with mm she had some kidney damage, we now find out after all these years that gabapentin is hard on the kidneys.

Water exercise and physical therapy (currently working on “toe-yoga”) for gait and balance (my neuromuscular dr. Recommended it). Helps, but doesn’t alleviate numbness. Also got professionally fitted for sneakers good for my feet (expensive but well worth it).
