Re: Neuropathy
Oct 19, 2011
Hi Boopbetty,
I'm new to the boards and it's nice to meet you. I have neuropathy and also agree that no two peole with pain are the same. I also had trouble getting help for pain at first, but went and got second and third opinions. After my second knee surgery my knee, leg, and foot started too hurt badly and one agravated the other. My Orth doc kept telling me it was all in the healing process. ;( Basically saying the pain was all in my head. I then went to a new primary care doc who actually listened to my cries. He sent me to a Neurologist and Rheumatologists. The Neuro Doc. tested me and found nerve damage (Neuropathy) and the Rhem Doc. is wacky and said that I have vitamin deficiencies. My primary gives me pain meds and Neuro gives Gabapentin. I refuse to live with all the pain and these two meds help if used together. There are many doctors who refuse to give pain meds because of the bad reputation, but I told them I'm in pain, I'm not a drug addict, and what can you do to help. Don't except no for an answer, because most doctors are not trained in chronic pain anyway. Good luck!! ;)
