Comments from related studies:
From this study (12 months ago):
Had no signs of neuropathy until my doctor changed high blood medicine. At first thought I had first signs of diabetes, but took test and I do not have diabetes. Right foot is just the big toe, the left food is the hole ball of the foot. IF I wear tennis shoes, it seems to go away or don't feel the numbness, but take off the shoes and I can tell my feet are just not the same as they use to be. Even tried taking over the counter vitamin B12 (heard that was a side effect.) it worked for a while. I want the feeling of my feet back!!
From this study (1 year ago):
low dose prednisone (20mg) for 7 to 14 days at a time. 1 to 2 times a year until recently. now 5-6 times a year. Used to treat asthma wheezing uncontrolled by conventional medications, inhalers, and breathing treatments (albuterol)
Numerous bacterial infections in sinuses. pseudomonas, bactroenterou, staph, (sorry about spelling) Just had a fourth sinus surgery. inflamed mucous lining
