I have throbbing foot pain and it is so bad at times that I have a hard time going to sleep. My doctor has prescribed Amitriptyline 25mg. However, I still have pain in the feet after taking it. But when I finally fall to sleep, I sleep like a rock and have a hard time waking up. I told my doctor and she just told me to double the prescription. I still have a hard time getting to sleep and an even harder time waking up. I learned that there is something called infrared therapy for diabetic neuropathy, also called Anodyne Light Therapy. Patients claim they have cured themselves of neuropathy and no longer have pain. The doctors that do this therapy claim that it will repair nerve damage and literally cure you with neuropathy. Has anyone heard of this kind of therapy? And have any of you tried Amitriptyline or know of a better medicine out there?

I have the burning foot pain due to neuropathy as well.

I have tried Neurontin (Gabepentin) and Nortypteline (an antidepressant) for medications without success. I also have tried using Alpha Lipolic Acid and Benfotamine also without success.

I have researched the Anodyne therapy, but the cost of the therapy had put me off going further with it. If I could be absolutely sure it worked it would be worth it, but I have been disappointed so often in this area I am almost given up trying to "fix" it.

I pray that you have better success than I have
