Tips For Multiple Myeloma Patients Suffering From Peripheral Neuropathy

I wanted to pass along these tips for those of you suffering from peripheral neuropathy (PN), from Bonnie, a long time multiple myeloma survivor:

I’ve been taking gabapentin for at least 10 years now, and it keeps my pn at a tolerable level. I stopped taking it at one point and soon realized how much it helped. I’ve also found an over-the-counter medication I rub on the bottom of my foot, and I think it helps also. Since I started using it, I’m able to actually shop for nearly an hour without the pn stopping me. The name is Neuragen, and I get it at Walgreen’s. The cost is around $30.00, but several magazines (AARP, Smithsonian, etc) have $5.00 coupons. You can use it as much as four times a day, but I usually only use it in the morning. Maybe it’s my imagination, but hey, whatever works, huh? Bonnie

Thanks, Bonnie!  Please keep those helpful hints coming everyone.  I will do my best to get them out to our readers.  Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
