      I really HATE to have to tell you this but nothing works. I have it and it isn't from chemo. Once the Nerve Cells are Damaged that is it....Chemo is the Gift that keeps on Giving.

      Check out Neropaquell. Husband swears to have had at least a 25% deduction and still gaining after 2 months. Found Walmart online price pretty good.

      I just checked Walmart online, and it couldn't be found; could you have misspelled it?

      My neuropathy started after chemo as well. Best thing I found for it is acupuncture.

      Try food.

      Eat a cup or more of strawberries daily along with a cup of sprouts.

      Strawberries are about 10% better but ANY berry or cherry will do at a cup or more per day. Same with sprouts. Alfalfa (non gmo) are about 10% more effective but a cup of any sprouts daily will do.

      You can eat them together or blended or one after the other or mixed in a salad or however you can think up. ... . except juiced. Their fiber is part of the trick.

      It takes a couple/three weeks to begin to notice a difference. The freedom from pain and cramping is sublime.

      Alternatively, keep eating as well as you think possible, improve that score, and take supplements.

      I would forgo animal products until I felt better. You dont need the mucus and inflammation which goes along.

      Barry simply hasnt tried this. With patience and determination, the methodology works.

      I have neuropathy pretty bad, It is caused by chemo but only partially. There are a lot of other elements involved here. I take 2400mgs. of Gabapentin that is a medium dose but that is all my Dr. wants to do because I am a small person. I was seen by a neurologist who referred me to physical therapy I had 8 weeks of hydro-therapy which helped a lot I know the exercises so I can now do them at the YMCA. I also am in the aquatic exercise group at the Y. I have found that exercise really helps.
