Hi CanSurvive...Welcome to our family! I have Neuropathy in both legs, have disc bulges and stenosis in the low back but was told not severe enough to cause this problem (go figure). Neurontin did not help, had a severe reaction to Lyrica! I was in great pain along with the numbness/tingling, what finally calmed down the pain was acupuncture and a procedure called Neural Therapy (like acupuncture but done with homeopathic remedies and Procaine injections). If I overdo then the pain flares, I also use a homeopathic ointment called Traumeel ingredients are Arnica which is for pain and bruising, speeds healing also Hypericum which is for nerve involvement/injury. Sometimes, if I push certain points on the leg I get some relief.
I feel for you because I never found anything that even took the edge off till I did the above.
I fall frequently from the numbness in the feet, one minute I'm standing or walking next thing I know my foot or leg gives out! I am still recuperating from a fall I had in June!!
Hope you find something that helps you too!
