So how is the neuropathy now. I have had it for 3 years.
William McLean on Jun, 4, 2012:
I am a 73 year old male. Up until three years ago I was employed as a caregiver to sick and dying individuals. I was healthy. About four years ago my primary care doctor put me on AMLODIPINE for Isolated Systolic Hypertension. Months later I started feeling un-well and had tingling sensations in my hands and feet. At that time these symptoms were very mild. However, as time went on, these symptoms grew worse. I had to quit working. I started having difficulty walking like a sober person. My toes stopped just feeling funny, they started feeling dead. I had pains in various parts of my body (like small muscle sprains). My neck and back ached greatly.
I had no idea what was wrong. As I complained to my doctor, he grew more and more impatient with me. Finally, he said: "Nobody should live more than seventy five years." So I fired him.
Three months later I found another primary care physician who immediately sent me to see a neurologist. The neurologist stated told me that I had Moderate Poly Neuropathy. Afterwards, my new primary doctor informed me that my medication AMLODIINE BES was the cause of my neuropathy.
I have been on LOSARTIAN POTASSIUM for three months now. I started recovering from neuropathy the first few weeks and my condition continues to improve day by day. While I did file a complaint with the Oregon Medical Board, I continue to feel hopeful for a full recovery.
