Nope. Have had for years. It seems to only get gradually worse and it sucks. I attribute it to cholesterol medication FWIW. Good luck.I have Neuropathy and I am sure others here must have it too. My feet and toes are numb and now my pinky fingers is getting numb too. I bought some boots that have "red lights" in them that were advertised on Amazon and I got took....I see on the net they are advertising a pad you stand on and it shocks your nerves...also sounds like a scam like the red lights. Has anyone tried anything that works? Thanks....
I also broke my shoulder and am learning to re use my muscles that tightened up for the month my arm was in a sling. I cant make a fist...sucks getting old!
Just as a sideline, dkmc: I only get Pasture Raised eggs now. Been doing some reading and watching some videos by doctors, and I'm seeing enough corroboration between a variety of sources I got a dozen PASURE RAISED eggs. Not "Cage Free", not "Free Range", but Pasture Raised.The US health care system runs on Sugar. The hospital food programs push it with every meal. It's good for business. Keeps people coming back.
The biggest joke in my 4 day stay in ICU (while I got my 5 stents) was the food they brought me because I was on the "heart healthy" diet. One morning, hash browns, mashed potatoes, and an English muffin with assorted little packets of candied jellies. Oh,and canned peaches swimming in liquid sugar sauce. I kept refusing to eat most of what they brought. At one point a group of nurses came in, concerned I wasn't eating the food (GF was bringing in real food). They asked "what can we bring you" and I said "A couple hard boiled eggs for some protein" to which there was a resounding round of laughter.....followed by "You CAN'T have them on your diet"! Completely clueless? Maybe not...
im going to order some. what dosage do take. thank you rayI'm not diabetic, but the tingling and nerve pain got pretty tough to take. I take alpha lipoic acid. It has all but disappeared. Cheap too! Urine will be REALLY yellow and have an odd odor. Don't care. It works!
We've woke up with the egg thing too. Grocery store eggs are awful with features as you mention.Just as a sideline, dkmc: I only get Pasture Raised eggs now. Been doing some reading and watching some videos by doctors, and I'm seeing enough corroboration between a variety of sources I got a dozen PASURE RAISED eggs. Not "Cage Free", not "Free Range", but Pasture Raised.
Cracked two Pasture Raised into a bowl followed by my last two regular eggs. The color difference is night and day. Both Pasture raised had nice, rich, orangy yolks and the normal eggs were a pale butter yellow.
Every reference I've seen says the rich orange / darker yolks are like that because they've got the nutrients and such in them they are supposed to have.
As I understand it, the industrial food industry plays games with "Cage Free" and "Free Range" terminology, nothing more than letting chickens out of their cages but still inside a building, still rubbing shoulders and still eating lousy manufactured feed.
So, it costs a little more, but at the moment I'm sold on "Pasture Raised" eggs where chickens are getting sunlight and have access to worms, bugs, and other stuff they'd naturally eat if Man hadn't come along and "improved" things.

I've had neuropathy for years now , started before my 4 failed back surgeries . That Gabapentin shit is bad shit ! They had me takin 2700 Mg daily , couldn't think or concentrate on anything was told I looked empty & felt that way . About the only thing worse is Methadone or Baclofen , some docs prescribe Baclofen for neuropathy , steer clear that shit mess with yer head too . I'm gonna have to look more into Alpha stuff mentioned , thanks for that .
Eric,Hey Ray, I'm going to try this out too. Where do you get the stuff? And what dosage do you use?
Our daughter "THE NURSE" had mentioned that. But said it won't hurt to try the tablet. It's all I need.......so far.A little info on this "alpha" stuff you guys are talking about. What they've discovered is that it "may" help, but in tests they've conducted, people had better results when it's administered via IV than by mouth.
