Reply To: Nerve pain
Yes, I took Alpha Lipoic Acid and many, many other things as well. Dr. Weil, a somewhat reputable medical professional says this “Take one B-100 B-complex vitamin daily. The B vitamins are necessary for normal nerve function, and supplementing is a good preventive measure. Do not take more than 200 mg of B-6, as higher daily doses can actually cause symptoms of neuropathy. Take 100 mg of alpha-lipoic acid daily. This antioxidant protects microcirculation to the nerves. You can gradually increase the dose to 300 mg twice a day over the next month.”
Dr. Weil makes other suggestions. here: http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART02717/Neuropathy.html
some physicians recommend Lyrica (pregabalin) Ask your doctor about being tested for your B-12 levels and if you should take additional supplements.
Sorry to read about your intense pain. I never did get that, only tingling and burning in my right hand.
