My Neuropathic Pain Has Disappeared!
0

10 posts in this topic

I realized today that my neuropathic pain formerly in my hands, forearms, lower legs, and feet is gone! At least for now, fingers crossed it won't come back. It seriously feels like a miracle!!! But, more accurately, I think it's a result of:

1) Being gluten-free now for 5 months

2) Eliminating corn (my symptoms were reduced immediately after I did this)

3) Having regular acupuncture (my symptoms were much reduced after sessions)

I'm so happy to share this with all of you.

WOW! I suffer from bad neuropathic pain as well, although i am not officially diagnosed yet (have biopsy on aug 31), so sill eating gluten

you gave me HOPE that i may see some relief. May I ask how you knew corn was a problem? And I am definitely going to looking into accupuncture as well!

This is great news!

I found acupuncture to be helpful also. It is definately worth a try. Also try some sublingual B12, that helped me even before I was at last diagnosed and gltuen free.

i have been taking 1000 mg subl. MB12 for months but it doesn't seem to help...maybe I need more? I do get a B12 shot once a month that seems to help my burning tongue somewhat...

any and all advice for neuro pain is greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much!

With the B12 shots and the sublinguals I wouldn't increase the dose without asking your doctor first. Hopefully once the biopsy is done and you can start the diet you will finally get some relief.

It is great news! I'm so glad to share it.

I found out that corn was effecting my neuropathy when I cut it out (after it started giving me GI symptoms). I never in a million years would have dropped it otherwise. But it was a happy surprise when, after not eating corn for 3 days, I realized that my neuropathy had receeded.

Acupuncture was amazing for the neuropathy. Before I discovered that corn was a trigger, I would go in with so much pain that it hurt to walk even a step. When I'd come out, the pain would be gone. At first, the pain relief only lasted 5 - 10 minutes, but every week I was experiencing less pain and I soon had longer periods without pain. Highly recommended!

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
