Please share anything you found that works - even if its spreading peanut butter on your ear. Hmmn…I might try that, but then I'd want jelly.

My neuropathy improves once my blood sugar is within range for about 2 weeks. I also take Lyrica which seems to help some.

mine got bad after I got under 6 … go figure.
I exercise and walk daily, have tried a number of OTC 'pain relief' rubs and ointments but still it progresses.
but not even close to giving up!

I have "enjoyed" the burning neuropathy of my knees down to my toes for many years now. I have tried many medications, suppliments and ointments to ease the burning, but I have found nothing yet which has eased the burning pain. But what may not work for me, may work for you, who knows?

I started out on Rx Neurontin/Gabapentin, and then on Rx Nortriptyline. both without effect. I then tried various suppliments like ALA (alpha Lipolic Acid) and a few others without effect. I also tried an ointment touted to reduce neuro pain, and that failed as well.

What I have not tried is capcasin cream, Rx Celebrex and formulas like Neuropathy Support Formula, and others things like the use of pain blocking devices like a TENS unit or an infared light therapy unit..

Actually I have grown weary of trying to ease the pain and am kinda frozen by "analysis paralysis", not knowing where to go next to try to ease the pain.

While researching this answer I came across an article on Neuropathy from the US NIH which I found fascinating ~

You might find something there of interest to you.

God's best to you and yours

Wow jayabee: that was a great article. I didn't know there was so many different types of neuropathy problems. I think I have found some answers to questions I didn't even know I had. Thank You!!!
