Hello, I was diagnosed with PN almost 10 years ago, and since then, my feet have become quite numb - especially lately. A friend told me that Cayenne pepper helps. Have any of you heard that before? If so, how is it taken? (I don't like hot food, so I hope it comes in a capsule that won't cause an ulcer or something like that...) Thank you, Loralee
acute onset numbness , weakness, and gait abnormalities over year ago, other abnormal sensations/functions and pain came on later, symptoms involving mostly sensory and autonomic with some motor persist but fluctuate. have a hard time controlling and dealing with the pain especially. sometimes walking is difficult and slow, numbness can be very annoying, but the pain is what has really changed my life. after extensive testing, i only tested positive for west nile virus, but neuro says that doesn't account for all symptoms. originally described to me as a guillan barre type of post-infectious poly-neuritis, which usually resolves on it's own a few weeks but can take several months. trying to figure out why i'm still so symptomatic. trying to find more effective pain management ideas. it's going on a year and a half already and i'm losing hope, my life has been turned topsy turvy. almost any activity aggravates, and when i push myself to do things - whether for fun or necessity- i always pay in increased pain and exhaustion, sometimes for days. wondering if MRSA infection (highly suspect but not diagnosed yet) rash that has been present off and on for about 2 years is contributing to the neuropathy in any way? anybody else similar situation, knowledge about this, helpful ideas?
I am in pain everyday! My life sucks! I just want to know how to get some relief! Most days I don't want to get out of bed! My feet and legs hurt the most on me but lately my hands are starting to hurt! On my right foot I have a lump on the bottom of my foot, I have bunions(big) on both feet, and I have rheumatoid on both but a lot more on the right, then I also have neuropathy on both feet. I also have cellulitis which makes my legs swell and throb with pain! I just have too much wrong with me, if I could find some relief for one or two of my problems I could deal with this a little better!! I would try some of the Garden of Eden but I don't know where to get some of the ingredients on the list? Has anyone tried that?? Any advice would be appreciated, thank you!!!!

My last Humira injection was 4/19/17. This was the 3rd injection after the starter dose(s). I actually experienced severe leg pain in the back of both legs after the 2nd dose of 2 injections. I challenged the medication and the pain decreased considerably. However, after the 2nd single injection I started having a lot of tingling in my left leg & foot and some in my right. Challenged the medication again and the pain, numbing & tingling became intolerable to the point of being unable to walk at times with the pain rendering me to tears. It's now 6/5/17 and I'm still having significant issues, mostly on the left. Does it eventually resolve or is this something that is now permanent? Is there anything that helps? Needless to say I'm miserable!
Hello everyone 😷! New Mexico Norm here . Found this site while on one of my internet explorations. Often thought I needed a way to vent, ask questions (other than a physician) and feel as though there may be a way to get some comfort from others experiences and maybe vice versa. We'll see. I'll start by saying that if you feel that I can offer any experience that may be of assistance ask away. I'm an open book per se.
It's been years since I've taken Methotrexate and when I was taking it years ago I had the numbness in my feet. Years later, it has returned and they're not sure what is the reason for my neuropathy. This time it's also in my hands. I took it for arthritis but now the military and the VA are telling me I never had arthritis but just a reacurring injury. I don't want to take heavy drugs but I'm tired of the numbness, tingling and shooting pain. I'm thinking of trying to find a way to take medical marijuana. Thanks for listening.
