Hi, I have just been diagnosed with neuropathy today.
I am not sure what drugs I will be put on - they are suggesting amytrypatlene (probably not spelled correctly) or pregabalin. I am a bit worried about the first one, as I understand that it can give you suicidal thoughts - and I suffer from depression anyway! The second one, I have had lot of the pregabalin and I was a zombie during the day. I mentioned this to the doctor and he poo poohed me and said that it is rare, to which I replied that anaphalaxis is rare but I have it from prawns! Does anyone else take these meds for their neuropathy?
Also is there anything practical I can do to reduce the sensations and the weakness? I have tingling and numbness and pins and needles in both my hands and arms and my legs, and an itchy feeling (without a rash) on my hand, going right through from back to palm, which is highly irritating!
Will any of this go away?
