Does peripheral neuropathy go away? I'm new to this so I'm curious. I'm not diabetic nor pre-diabetic. I looked up if this illness gets cured and google says it does after 6 months or a year. But how come there are people here in this app with the illness for more than 2 or 5 years now?

      I'm new to neuropathy I feel like my doctor doesn't believe me. He is sending me to pain management. I haven't started yet, waiting on the referral to go through. I'm hoping the pain management works.

      Thank you for this... Right at this moment I still don't know what COULD be causing this. My first neuro to take care if thus just decided its idiopathic. She instantly got on my damn nerves!

      Peripheral neuropathy isn't a disease in and of itself. It's a symptom. So how bad, how fast or whether it goes away depends on what's causing it. There are several known causes and then many more unknown variables. If whatever caused it gets better, you have a good enough chance of improving. Otherwise, well most of us get worse over time.

      Not to be the bearer of bad news but l am not a diabetic and my Peripheral Poly Nueropathy is getting worse. It has actually starting to attack some of my internal organs. I hope yours does not get that bad. Good Luck

      Sadly, though it is possible, almost never do you see full healing and only occasionally even significant healing. In fact for more than half it seems to slowly get worse. Good news is as a non diabetic your much more likely to heal and much less likely to progress. However it will take almost certainly years for full recovery and months for significant improvement. Each person is different and you cannot base your expectations only on statistics!

      I am not diabetic other. Mine is believed to have started as a young child from head trauma. But as a young child no one believed me even as a teenager. 40 years later it got so bad l had no choice but needed to find help. Doctor can’t believe how l went on all those years with so much pain.

      Unfortunately Peripheral Neuropathy does not go away but it can controlled with the proper medication if you see a Nuerologists that will listen to you. I went through 4 specialist until the 4th one believed me l was not faking. I stuffed for a year and a half because l was told l was faking. Finally found a wonderful doctor who listened to my cries and l had a diagnosis in a week. My Peripheral Neuropathy is spreading but could be because it took so long to find a doctor or cares. It has now attacked my bladder, my esophagus and my heart. So you can imagine how much medications l am on every morning and night.

      I'm sorry that you all have this condition as well. It can be torturous at times, physically and mentally. I had tried different supplements amd meds. Nothing to cure it so far. But I am hopeful the science community develops.something for this.

      Hi Vance! In my experience, I have found that there is no cure for this which what we deal with and go through. I'm not diabetic nor pre-diabetic either. I've had this over a year now and I'm currently having to have the assistance of a walker.

      I had a low B12 levels dew months back and now after taking 5000 mcg of B12, it now exceeds the normal level. I have since stopped a month ago.
