Reply To: Neuropathy… still?

Thanks for the reply shelbones.

I did try acupuncture with no relief at all. I’ve tried all the obvious over the counter things like the various types of pain relievers, capsacin, lost 25 lbs. hoping it would reduce some pressure somewhere (nope), lyrica (bad reaction), gabapentin (fell asleep on a minimal dose).

Uggs are an interesting suggestion. I’ve never tried them on. The issue for me is compression which is why the really open sandals were ok.  I did try on a pair of fur lined crocs at the store but they didn’t have a size roomy enough for me. I seem to need acres of room which is why the crocs were the second option without having to wear socks. I’ll have to figure something out.  I need to see if there are other sock options out there.

What point are you at in this trip?
