      For those who take Gabapentin. Have you experienced issues with hair loss.

      The combo of gabapentin and nortriptyline is what helped me.

      Gabapentin is what my doctor gave me. It helps a lot but doesn’t take care of it. Very painful on my legs and running water or anything on them hurts. I end up wearing no pants at home and hate it when I have to go out

        @Surprise I’m happy to hear you have a solution to your pain I have tried gold bond ultimate for diabetics I’ve tried outback original oils and I’ve also tried maximum strength neuropathy intensive concentrator for relief and recovery and they all help a little when I put them all on at once

      I usually start with a warm bath. I try to relax and put my feet in the hot water. Then I put them up on the bathtub for a few minutes to try and relax. Sometimes that will work and I will just go to bed after but there are many nights that I have really painful nights. My pain is in the bottom of both feet so I ordered these slippers that are ice packs from Amazon. I will put them on and then slip on these bootie slippers that I have and it will keep them on my feet. I always wear some socks to protect my skin but eventually it gets cold enough that it helps with the pain and I can take it off. I hate taking too much pain medication because it messes with my sleep so I try this. I hope this helps you!
