Female, age 52 but noticed numbness in the ball of the foot area 3 + years ago and since that time has gotten gradually worse to the point of burning and pain. I had gotten 2 corizone shots in my left foot and 1 in my right and didn'
t seems to help much at all. For the last 3 months I am on what is called WSN nerve formula food... full of Vitamin B's and it really relieving and progressivly helping the symptoms of the Neuropathy. But I feel the Neuropathy had been caused by the Hydrochlorithiazine that I had been taking for 12 years prescribed to me for reducing the calcium in my urine to not get kidney stones or to help them from not forming.

From this study (5 days ago):
Minor activity using my muscles , the pain level is extreme, it takes 2 days to recover.
From this study (7 days ago):
I just put together that the white and pink spots are allergic reactions to this medicine.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I presented with Retinal Vein Occlusion for no apparent reason. I am 62, healthy, just had a checkup of body and eyes with no problems. Got off of HCTZ as a precaution. The vein opened back up after the occlusion, which the doctor said was a miracle. I'm in agreement with the "miracle" from God. I had this happen around the first of June, and no other problems with my eyes since. I have Salzman's Disease on my eyes. Have had for 3 years or so. No correlation to this occurance. Please let me know if you see anything that could have caused this. Thanks
