I have neuropathy in my feet and in a lot of pain. I'm on

Customer Question

I have neuropathy in my feet and in a lot of pain. I'm on Neurontin, Cymbalta, and hydrocodone. A lot of nights I get about 3 hours of sleep because of pain. I hurt so bad today that I have been crying this morning and got desperate enough to add extra hydrocodone which I shouldn't do. Is there any other means of help? Where do I go? I am I Arkansas.

Thanks for the question.

I understand the situation.

Neurontin can be increased.

It has a wide dosing range.

There are other medications as well.

You should see a pain management specialist at this point.

I would suggest also that you immediately find a medical acupuncturist or Chinese Medicine acupunctrist.

It depends on the cause of the neuropathy but this can help.
