Hello Dr Rick,
My Neuropathy started about 8-9 years ago, and slowing getting worse, over time, and yes I have arthritis, too. but no to bad, not on medication,
I was wondering if there was any thing new, it sure has slowed me up, and not able to enjoy life in my later years, its cruel to live with.
I have been told I had it, after tests, on my nerves in my legs, but no fellow up test or comments, have been done, just put on Lyrica 2x a day, I had been on Codapane Forte, some years, ago, and then I found these socks from USA, which helped, and taking vit B,yes so far its only my feet that are affected, I rearly don,t know what the cause could be.
Thank you Dr Rick
the test done on my legs were found, that the problem was below my knees, I fell down a hole that was still covered with grass, about 10 years ago, and had a little pain in my right knee, since then, I have had continues pain, I went to a bone specialist, and was told it was arthritis, and have had a knee replacement, but I have still got the pain, and was hoping the neuropathy, would go in that leg , but no it didn,t. found out it was a pinched nerve, by a physio, now it is strap up all the time but it has eased the pain in my knee, but not my feet, with all that is going on, Its getting beyond me, [ my dad had arthritis too] may be it is arthritis below my knees, sorry I dont want to waste your time, thank for you help. Regards Jean
