I've not been here in a long while but am glad to see it's still active and well used in supporting each other. I think this is maybe the best such board on the web, and I really appreciate how well it is moderated. I don't come here as often as I once did due to an interesting paradox/dilemma I experience when on this CP board: first, as someone in cp since 1984, and who lived-worked with it for many years without meds, and have learned to live with it, I find that when I come here I focus on the idea of pain -- and this leads me to focus my attention on my own pain (which I manage to push out of the foreground of my awareness most of the day). In short, even when I come here mainly to support fellow CP-ites, it ends up being a end-gain negative for me alot of the times. Maybe someday I'll learn how to better control those thoughts and tendency toward the dark side and focus more on being helpful to others who are surely far worse off than I.
But that's not why I'm here today. I have had peripheral (non-diabetic) neuropathy since not long after my botched spinal lumbar fusion in '84, when it started as cold feet and worked its way up to my hips over time, going from cold to hot-cold-pins-burning-tingling...you get the picture...
So my ears perked up when I came across a B vitamin which is oil soluble, and thus stays in the system longer. I found one company WCN **** which sells a combination of the 2 I mention in subject, with some more B's and a bit of D & Folic acid. Testimonials are raving for helping neuropathy but I prefer to get testimonials away from a product web site.
I've googled and found a fair amount of support for the claims on the WCN web site, but wondered if any of you had tried Benfotiamine and/or Methyl B12[Methylcobalamin(e)] for your peripheral neuropathy. If so, what dosages etc worked for you? Would appreciate it. Take care all, "OO"
