What Helps With Neuropathic Pain?

What Helps With Neuropathic Pain?

I found out yesterday that I might have neuropathy in my feet. (I'm getting a test to confirm.) Does anyone else have this? And what helps w/ the pain?

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

Yes, I have it. But about three years ago I went to a foot doctor, he shot a few spots. After that I haven't had too much problems.

Does Anyone Take Lyrica

I didn't want to take due to bipolar could flare up but I'm desparate. Even my neuron tin is not helping. It feels like my body is attacking itself. Horrible. Does Anything take pain away and I can keep some abilities?

Neurontin

Neurontin

Hello everyone,

I just was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and this weekend I started Neurontin. This is my third day and I have taken two out of the three pills I am going to take today. It is controlling my pain but I noticed my lips are tingling and are a little numb. Is that normal? Any thoughts will be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Donna

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

The tingling and numbing started once I started the Neurontin. The Er and regular doctor said is was allergic reaction. But I hope it stops for you soon.
