Doctor :   HI,
User :   hi there
User :   can you help with the quick question
Doctor :   No, they may not be of much help if there is a diagnosed peripheral neuropathy
Doctor :   Multivitamin supplements in milder cases and steroids in sever cases is the mainstay of the treatment
User :   This has been diagnosed and I am waiting to see a neuroologist but the waiting list here is very long (Ireland) and I just cannot sleep. Thanks for your help, unfortunately it is late here and I ccannot sleep and I had a couple of antidepressants available which I thought might help. As they wont I will just have to wait. Thanks for your assistance.
