HelloCustomerbr />
Thanks for your reply,

Neuropathy is a disorder of peripheral nervous system. The common symptoms are numbness, tingling and pain apart from muscle weakness, cramps and muscle spasms. (All patients may not have all the symptoms, it depends on individual body constitution also)..

Treatment for Neuropathy is tricky and challenging.. A combination of drugs, topical agents, food supplements and nervous stimulation (like electric shock therapy that you've been undergoing) are used as part of therapy.

Certain techniques like adequate rest, Compression with crepe bandage and Elevation can help relieve the suffering. (While elevating your legs see that they are raised above your heart level. Keep a few pillows underneath your feet and it will do..)

Your doctor alone can decide on the treatment regimen and selection of drugs. (though pregabalin is one of the widely prescribed drugs). I suggest you keep a regular date with your doctor.

See the following link to know more info on Neuropathy yourself..

Let me know, if you have more questions..

Thanks
