Howdy Ruby & Captin,

Thank you folks for your speedy replies. Ruby, I too take Cymbalta (60mg daily) & gabapentin (800mg three times/day). Although, I have had some improvement with the gabapentin, and have discussed increasing my dosage, I am a little afraid to because it makes me super sleepy. I lead a very busy lifestyle (who doesn't these days) with 4 children ages 9-17 & work 6 eight hour shifts every week. Up until this all started up about a year ago, I was pretty active. I was using the eliptycal & treadmill 5 days a week, but now can't do it anymore because of the pain in my feet. I gained about 40 lbs due to high dose prednisone coupled with decreased activity, my blood pressure, glucose levels & lipid levels all skyrocketed. I've just taken off the weight I gained and am working on losing a little more. All of this just seems to be snowballing. It's very frustrating.

I've decided to start the alpha lipoic acid and try it for 4-6 weeks. Does anyone know if ever helps with SFN numbness? Does IVig improve numbness? Those are questions I forgot to ask.

Thanks and best regards,
