Hi Ursula, I also have bad Peripheral Neuropathy and I am on Gabapentin 1800 mg and it wasn’t until I got to this dosage that it helped.

Love, Marcia 🌸

Thank you Jmoline. Our daughter got my husband this foot massager, and for him, it works miracles.

It might be helpful to others, so here is the link. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06WP7GXX5/ref=redir_...(Phone number can only be seen by the question and answer creators)&pd_rd_plhdr=t&pd_rd_r=33c9ef93-3a0b-4374-9c3b-23faed061df1&pd_rd_w=QqmWs&pd_rd_wg=YueQ5&ref_=sbx_be_s_sparkle_lsi4d_asin_1_img
