Vent about Permanent Neuropathy
I'm interested in hearing from those with long term this isn't going to get better neuropathy. Too often when I bring this up I'm told...It will get better...it is temporary...mine got better....take glutamine it works.....have you tried gabapentin....lyrica.... I know there are many here going through worse, including a dear family member right now, however, some days I just can't take it. I'm tired of discarding the ear rings I want to wear every morning because my fingers don't work well enough to put them in. I'm tired of dropping things all the time in the kitchen. I'm tired of how different my career is now due to persistent lymphedema and neuropathy. I'm tired of hurting every morning and hurting worse every night. I'm tired of not being able to go on long walks with DH in nice weather because my feet hurt too much. Please don't tell me it will get better. I've accepted it won't, please don't deny my reality. I just wanted a place to vent with others who know what this is like.
Oh yes, add in, I'm tired of sleeping with my feet wrapped up in a heating pad because the cold triggers the pain. (Which of course makes the hot flashes worse)
