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?

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.

I was taking Gabapentin as well, but it wasn’t working very well. My Dr. switched me to Lyrica and it worked for me.

I specifically asked a doctor at MMRF conference I attended since the LLS conference the doctor stated it is related to the disease. So he told me a B complex twice a day. I haven't tried it yet but certainly can't hurt since B vitamins are good for energy. Praying you heal quickly.

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!
