Thanks for using healthcare magic.
I have gone through your available history.

Your neuropathy might be because of
1- vitamin B12 deficiency
2- age related degeneration.
3- somatic complains
4 - as a side effects of drugs.
Please revert to me what drugs you are taking for manic depression.

You should go for blood investigations like cholesterol, vitamin B12 level.

You should also consult your psychiatrist or neurologist for drug related cause.

You may get benefited by gabapentine or anti oxidants or vitamin B12 supplement.
You may get prescription by your doctor.
I hope i have addressed your concern.

Feel free to revert to me in case if you have any query.
