Neuropathy Issues

Neuropathy Issues

Happy Friday Team
Does anyone feel the numbness all day? My doctors have me taking Lyrica 3 times a day and Cymbalta at night. I have it in my lower feet. At night when it's time for bed the numbness is very intense it's hard to fall asleep some nights.

The neuropathy from Velcade was bad and I still take Gabapentin even 6 months after stopping it. I often use Max Strength Aspercreme Lidocaine to numb my feet. Not sure if it works a little bit or is my imagination. I like to think that the nerves are growing back as my hands are much better, but Velcade was the worse for me.

DebraDardenMcDow, Hi, I have had bad Neuropathy for years and I have slowly increased my Gabapentin to 1,800 mg. I take 1 in am, two after dinner and 3 at night. It is finally under control. I had severe electrical pain that shot down my feet and would wake me up at night. I have tried Cymbalta and Lyrica and they didn’t help me. CBD cream did help some but the creams , sprays wear off too soon. Good luck finding what will work for you! Have a good night! Love, Marcia 🌼🌸🌻

We have been discussing this very topic. I spray my feet with Icy hot, or I use Ben Gay cream. Amazon has neuropathy foot cream that helps some. Also, Mepapermaker1 has had good luck with kinesiology tape on his feet 💜
