My Neuropathic Pain Has Disappeared!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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!

    • yeah , i might try go tomorrow if I can find out - i literally stopped 2 days ago so unikely to be out of my system and if im due to go for a test tomorrow I could maybe try eating something witha bit of gluten in tonight or something to "top up" as it were
    • I was completely floored by the realisation after I went gluten free of just how badly it had been affecting me. Before then I had all these different things which I was either barely coping with, ignoring, trying to pretend they weren't there etc. I went gluten free and suddenly all sorts of different things started to resolve. It blew my mind! Try and get a blood test now before cutting it, its so much easier than going back on it for a gluten challenge.  If the test is negative, don't assume its not an issue for you. My test was negative but I responded to the diet.  Lots of help and advice here if you need it Best of luck! Matt
    • Gemma......if you are ever in London, please check out this place.  It is a 100% gluten free bakery and the food is out of this world!  I can't get bread like this in the States and it certainly is worth a road trip for anyone living in the Uk, within reasonable distance from London.  It will easily satisfy all of your bakery cravings and I bet the bread freezes well. http://www.beyondbread.co.uk/
    • Celiac disease can be dormant for years til a strain/stress to the immune system makes it come out. Many of us have had this issues, your infection run in might have triggered the dormant genes for the disease if you had them. I would follow up with the testing, see about getting a full celiac blood panel if you can, you have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks daily prior to testing. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

        If not celiac it could be another food intolerance/sensitivity I suggest keeping a food diary and tracking what you eat, seasonings, how it is cooked etc. And how you feel later. Change up our diet more and look for patterns.  Here is stuff to read up on. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Yeah , i will look into getting tested - like you say there is no harm in it . What I found very interesting is the part where you say "Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflamed tissues pressing on nerves." - I also started to get chronic sciatic nerve pain on the right side over a similar time period and am wondering if its the same kind of thing. If I could solve both those things it would be life changing for me
