I've had some type of neuropathy for some time. My hand and feet have pain, numbness, and tingling. My feet are always freezing even in the summer and my hands are also very cold. More recently, I've been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis starting in my neck and all the way down and told I now need total hip replacement. The left hip will be replaced this month Monday February 23,2015.
I have trouble dropping things with my right hand particularly the right, in addition to using it for various tasks. Other symptoms are dizziness, off balance whether I'm getting out of bed or basic physical activity such as walking and there are other symptoms, which I haven't listed.

I have the same issues and symptoms as you. First, my prayers of wellness and healing go out to all. I use Gold Bond Pain Relieving Foot Cream and RTPR Real Time Pain Relief foot cream along with Ben Gay on calves, knees, small of back and shoulders and arms. Don't just rub it on, massage it in. Eery 2 r 3 days.Along with weed r Medical MJ, i have stayed off prescription drugs. Neuropthy cramps are much less severe and less often now and trust me my friends, i got the mind bending bad ones, distorting my fe3et into shapes that i could not believe. i'm 66 years young, male.

I've recently stopped taking ibuprofen after many years of taking it daily. I take between 800 to 1500 mg a day, mostly before bed to sleep. I have had a lot of sport injuries do it was for joint pain. It's been about a week since taking any and I'm getting really bad headaches. Can't seem to find this as a withdrawal issue... any one else experience this? Thanks!
