I am trying to figure out what is helping me as i feel great with what my new llmd has me on. 
One of my most recent worst symptoms was neuropathy, burning, tingling, numbness.  She has me on alpha lipoic acid which is apparently very helpful with neuropathies.  I wanted to pass it along because something is greatly helping me.  Google it and read about it.

Neuropathy is my major issue now and I will definitely check into the alpha lipoic acid. Are you still on antibiotics?
Thanks for posting this and glad to hear that you are seeing some improvement.

 My LLMD wanted me to get my amalgam fillings removed beore doing Alpha Lipoic Acid. It does have a reputation for binding and moving mercury and other metals and it is one of the few chelators that will cross the brain barrier, so there might be a possibilty that it could take mercury out of your fillings and deposit in your brain. I am a big believer in ALA, but this should probably be a consideration.
