Hi Mildred,

My experience is it doesn't matter trying another doctor: they'll all pretty much say the same thing, so save your money. The only way you're going to find out what is causing your pain is to find out for yourself.

There are over 100 different known causes of PN, and I never did find a doctor interested enough to try. I don't know why. All they told me was it wasn't treatable and to get used to it.

I was in wheelchair because the pain was so bad in my feet I could not even tolerate the slightest touch let alone standing on them. This went on for two years.

Not finding a cause was not an option. My life was at stake. So every night I hit the web and researched and researched and researched. Then I tried every vitamin that helped anyone out there. None of them helped. I finally found my problem last July. It may or not be the same thing causing yours, but it's worth considering, so I'm posting it. Someone posted it for me and saved my life.

Some people are allergic to a substance called gluten found in wheat, rye and barley. My doctors were shocked to discover this gluten intolerance had no gastric symptoms for me. I;ve discovered that's actually common. One of my doc's actually laughed at me when I said I was trying a gluten-free diet. When I walked into his office on my own two feet a few months later he was amazed.

What gluten does if you're intolerant is destroy the villi in the intestines and this prevents the absorption of nutrients. The severe loss of any one of many nutrients can cause neuropathy, and supplements don't work because the absorption isn't working. You can try methylcobalamin B12 tablets. If that or B12 shots help, you know you're on the trail of a nutrient deficiency. But you can't rule it out even if the B12 doesn't work.

Do lots of research. If you want any more info from me just let me know. Good luck and hang in there. You CAN find a cure, you just can't rely on doctors to do it for you. I've talked to lots of folks who found their cause and cure. The one thing in common is that we all were diligent at researching and trying everything until we found that magic bullet with our name on it.
