I Have Neuropathy In My Feet, Can Anyone Recommend Something That Helps Ease The Pain?
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone use Neuragen? And does it work?

Lyrica is good for ending the pain, but it does have side-effects: destroying/damaging synapses in the brain; creating suicidal feelings; making one do silly, thoughtless things. Use it to get rid of the pain, but then move off it and use a less harmful substitute such as curcumin with black pepper. I have been minus the excruciating pains for five years now.

For me this turned out to be simple. My Endochrinologist suggested a OTC supplement and it’s been a Godsend for me. Not saying everybody will benefit but, if you stick closely to this regimen, as did I, the relief came inside a week. It’s cheap too. Alpha-Lapoic Acid. One capsul in the morning and one in the evening. No side effects for me.

I too have neuropathy in my feet. I asked my Endo what to take and she recommended Alpha Lapoic Acid x2 daily. It’s sold over-the-counter and it has helped quite a bit.

CBD oil or Benfotiamine with Alpha-Lipoic Acid.
