      TXhills was your B12 levels low before you started taking it? I had heard about B12 but my hemotologist tested my blood and said my levels were good and do not take more. Only asking because so many have mentioned B12 and maybe it would help me.

      Neuropathy is literally a pain. My chemo was 6.5 years ago and I am still experiencing excruciating pain in my feet. My doctor had me on Gabapentin (with no relief) and put me on Lyrica 3x a day. The pain has lessened but I still wake up in the middle of the night because of my feet. I have just learned to live with it and thank God I am alive, rather have the side effects than not feel anything. Good luck to you and hoping you can find relief.

      Yes...neuropathy in my feet. Initially it was bad - woke me up thru the nite. Felt like I was walking on needles. My doctor did prescribe lyrics. I did not like the side effects. I tried it for about a month but I got to the point I couldn't remember things...not good. I have found thru physical therapy and exercise it has gotten better. Not gone but better. Good luck it is irritating.
