Does Anyone Have Experience With Accupressure Or Accupuncture To Relieve The Footpain Of Neuropathy?

Does Anyone Have Experience With Accupressure Or Accupuncture To Relieve The Footpain Of Neuropathy?

My husband was diagnosed with MM in September of 2019. He received one high dose of radiation for the fist size tumor in his ribs, and then started the Velcade shot once a week, along with the Revlemid (14 days on, 7 days off) and the Dexamethason. 5 Weeks ago, he started getting cramps in his feet and tingling in his hands. He told his Oncologist about it, when he received the weekly Velcade shot. The following week, the pain had worsened and the Dr. took him off the Velcade right away… read more

MMaffects your kidneys and as such be sure to ask your Dr because I was only allowed certain ones as my kidneys were gone when diagnosed.

Is there an alternative drug to Velcade that doesn't cause neuropathy? I have been on it for only four months and starting to get tingling in hands and feet. Is this reversible? Has anyone experienced this and when did you get off the drug?

What Treatment Can Anyone Recommend For Neuropathy On My Feet And Toes?

What Treatment Can Anyone Recommend For Neuropathy On My Feet And Toes?

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.

Does anyone have any suggestions about neuropathy at night? It is sooooo painful I have a hard time going to sleep.

My husband's oncologist said she has patient's who take up to 3600 mgs per day. Seems to be a safe medication used for many reasons.

Glad it works for you!

Neuropathy

Neuropathy

I didn't have neuropathy with the first treatment, however, after the SCT I came home with mild neuropathy in my feet & mouth(I know I'm weird right?). That was in July of 17. I was on maintenence chemo until January of this year. My neuropathy has progressively gotten worse. I just had a nerve conductivity test. Now its moderate to severe depending on where its at. My questions are - can neuropathy cause joints to stiffen? Cause a person not to be able to walk? What are things that help?
