I have neuropathy of the feet. I have found the best thing is to keep my sugar as good as possible. I have had type 2 for 29 years.
Next best thing is the meds I take for FMS, Prozac, Xanax, Diclofenac/Cytotec. Also I take Lortabs when I need them.
Basically my feet don't bother me much anymore. The loss of sensation/numbness does drive me sort of crazy though, but the shocking sharp pains I don't get like I used to. I sort of think once you can get your FMS under control, you'll have your neuropathy under control.
I've never seen a neurologist about my feet before or stayed on any of the meds given for that, that are popular. I sort of just suffered through the pains at night. It really never got so bad that I had to get up and take anything for pain.
I'm really sharp about my sugar though. I am on insulin, so I think that helps me as I can control how much I take due to what I eat and what my blood sugar levels are.
I do understand what you are going through. Sometimes I wonder if my nerves have just given up on the pain part?
