hi, I have a peripheral neuropathy secondary to chronic plantar
Also have had blood clots in both legs.
Treatment possibilities listed below and include surgery is a possibility.
Hello and welcome to "Ask a Doctor" service.
I have read your query and here is my advice.
Treatment modalities in case of neuropathy due to plantar fasciitis include anti-inflammatory drugs use, supplements (vitamin B complex, alpha-lipoic acid, etc.), physical therapy, local steroid injections.
There are no sufficient data for other treatment modalities to support benefit (stem cells, growth factors, etc.).
In cases of prolonged symptoms, antineuralgic drugs ( antidepressants such as amitryptiline, duloxetine, anti-seizure drugs such as pregabalin, gabapentin) may be considered.
In carefully selected cases when confirmed clinically and by tests (MRI, nerve conduction studies) that there is a clear point of entrapment of the nerve(s) surgical release may be beneficial.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
