Suggest treatment for peripheral neuropathy and charcot foot

i was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy over 20+ years ago. I have since then lost all feeling in my legs and have now been diagnosed with charcot foot in both feet. I DO NOT HAVE DIABETES!!!! I have been told that there is nothing much that anyone can do other than braces on both feet, and medication. Please help me I know that there is something I can do.

Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The symptoms seem to be related to peripheral neuropathy.
The treatment consists in medication to relieve the symptoms.
I suggest Gabapentin as a specific treatment to relieve the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy.
I also suggest physical therapy.
Other treatment consists in surgery or injections for increased nerve pressure. 

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
