How to treat peripheral neuropathy?

i tried gababentin for a few months but it did not improve my neuropathy. i finally used an old family recipe by boiling fresh oregano and then immersing my feet and hands in it. it helps to a degree but i am still plagued by this condition that was due to chemotherapy. someone suggested a product called nerve support formula . any comments? i used to type 85 words per minute with very few errors but now i can t type very fast so you get an idea where i am coming from. i am 73, 145 pounds, 5 6 1/2 , have been fighting gastric cancer for 4 years that ultimately resulted in a complete gastrectomy.

Hi,

Treatment depends on symptoms. For pain, you can use Pregabalin or Duloxetine. For numbness, you can use vitamin supplements. Recovery is slow and takes several months.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist
