Hello friends!
It is a long time since I have visited this forum!  For any of you who might remember me, hello again!!  And a special hello to those here I haven't met yet! I've come back around here, looking for any help or ideas for dealing with extreme peripheral neuropathy.
I am currently taking oxycodone IR, 15mg every 4 hours.  Also Tramadol.
Small background on me....Mom of 11, my youngest angel with Down syndrome.   I have LPHS, Lupus.
I'd be grateful for any thoughts or ideas here!

Hi mysweet10, I have bad neuropathyin my legs and feet, I use Neurontin and have some good relief, the dose I take is pretty high, I guess because of my size, (6' 5" 300lbs) I take between 4000mg-5000mg a day when I work much less on weekends, I would recommend it 100%. :)
Diagnosed with DDD, Tarsal Tunnel, 3 Herniated discs, Arthritis in hands. Asthma, Hypertension, Diabetes.
Currently on 75 mcg Duragesic Patch, Neurontin 4800 mg daily, Relafen 1500mg daily, Lexapro, and have SCS unit for leg pain.
             PAIN SUCKS :(

Hi Ibby,

Great to hear from you again! How is your sweet Angel doing? I hope she's well. She must be such a wonderful cuddle bug for you to hold. Keep in touch...
