My DH and I are both on statins. He is diabetic - T1, I do not have diabetes. He has had a heart attack, so the med is very necessary for him. I have several other issues and I have neuropathy. My DH has neuropathy from the diabetes. He is also on the gabapentin. It helps to a degree.
My back in particular is either numb or burning, all day, all night. Sherrine was talking over on the Fibro forum about something she used to help w/ the 'fun' of Fibro. The product she used was called Sombra, she ordered it from Amazon. I figured it might be worth a try. I have tried sooo many things, and they really didn't help that much.
I ordered a jar of the 'warm therapy' - I don't like cold things near my body. My DH rubbed it on my back and I can't begin to tell you the relief I felt. I suggested to my DH that he might want to give it a chance. He didn't expect much from it. He rubbed it on his feet (big source of pain) and his knees. He couldn't believe how much better he felt in just a few minutes.
My DH's foot dr was very interested to learn about this product, maybe mention it to other patients.
I had my gallbladder removed over 20 yrs ago. I also developed BSD while still in the hospital. My dr had no idea what was going on, thought I had an infection. After many months of this nonsense, I went to the gasto who put me on Questran. It was first used for High Cholesterol, but off label is used to control diarrhea. It helped me so much. I don't use it right now, I guess I'm in a stable place w/ the Big D. lol Also, I can't take Questran & the statin together.
My DH and I take the Co-Q-10. Our cardio was very happy to see that on our list of meds/supplements. Thank you again, Sherrine!
Hope you all have a good day!
God bless. Alice.
