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!
