What Treatment Can Anyone Recommend For Neuropathy On My Feet And Toes?
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

Drugs treatment plan was Revlimid, Velcade, Dexaethasone. I stopped the Velcade once numbness and tingling got worse. I continue now with lower dose of Revlimid and Dexaethasone. The pain in my feet has gotten worse and have tried natural remedies but no relief. Dr prescribed Gabapentin and have taken now for a few weeks but was told it takes longer before I would notice if it’s helping. Had some bad side effects so now taking Lyrica which seems to be helping to take the burning sensation away… read more

I take B-12 vitamin, Gabapentin didn’t do much, I was like a zombie.
My cancer is coming back, so now I taking Pomalyst and Dexa, but the I don’t do to good with Dexamethasone, my heart rate is very high, I get drawn blood every 2 weeks and see the Nurse or Doctor every 2 weeks, but I have been in this medication for only 21 days, I think I have to wait at least 4 months, to see if they are working or not.
I try to stay positive, and will see the outcome, but I did lasted 9 years in complete remission.❤️

I have neuropathy in my hands and feet as well as in my legs. Just started experiencing some pain in my right foot but nothing major. Mine is mainly numbness which causes issues with my balance. Just went to a new Dr who deals with just Myeloma and he suggested B-Complex, Alpha Lapoic Acid, walking and a small grass mat to put in front of your chair to stimulate the nerves. I know, sounds funny but at this point I’m willing to try anything.

My wife was treated with Velcade and Cytoxin. She is now in remission, and takes Tramadol 50 mg 2x/day and Gabapentine 300mg at night, and her foot neuropathy is greatly reduced. Hope something gives you relief!

Revlimid did not cause the nerve issue. It was the Velcade. I’m now in remission. Doc stopped it today.

My doctor gave me Pramexoprile to take at night and it had really helped me.
