Hello, I'm not sure what the cause is of my peripheral neuropathy but I have been taking Depakote since I was 29 for seizures that started with no known cause. I didn't even know I had anything wrong until two years ago when I noticed that standing for long periods while performing in one of my concert bands at night, or after walking off a golf course. I stopped walking on the golf courses and using carts but as I was unaware of the cause, it of course didn't help. I also wonder if a gluten sensitivity may be the cause? The symptoms used to be only after those activities, but now I'm starting to experience them even upon awakening. I can't wear shoes without swelling and compression socks as well as socks for diabetics don't offer any relief. I've tried cortisone, acupuncture, massage, creams, everything. I haven't spoken to my neurologist yet about the possibility of the medication even being the cause, but are there people who have stopped taking depakote and noticed any improvement? I'm also taking the generic form called Divalproex, not sure if that makes a difference? Thanks for any input!
