Default Newcomer - would like PN feedback

Hi, I am a 52 chiropractor, on my feet all day for 30 years, started noticing "balled up socks" feeling under toes on both feet awhile back, ignored it until it became constant, now realize I have small fiber PN. Since I take REALLY good care of myself (whole food diet, proper supplementation, exercise, weight is fine) and don't have any of the diseases associated with small fiber PN (in other words, idiopathic or "they just don't know") I am really interested in what others with same have done to help get rid of the "balled up socks" feeling. Not wanting this to progress and feeling a bit isolated and scared. All constructive advice is welcome.

Smile Hello inn8doc!

WELCOME to NT!

Just wanted to send out a welcome hug
You've found such a wonderful place of support and understanding.
Make yourself right at home. This is a very down-to-earth, easy-going atmosphere, so feel free to post anywhere you may feel inclined. The Peripheral Neuropathy forum is loaded with lots of info. PN carries a very wide array of symptoms.

I hope you will begin to get some answers VERY soon.
It's great to have you!

Caring,
Rae

I'm brand new here. I have small nerve on as well. Am asking if you find anything useful to please share. Not a poster or blogger so indulge my private note to u. I was hoping to fall back on a friend of mine whom is a neuro-chiro. I do have a neuro masseuse in Atlanta who has successfully helped me in the past. Alas I'm stuck in VA. My chiro friend is in valley forge, pa. I have tried alpha lipoic acid to no avail, among hosts of other supplements. I realize there are many causes of pn but do hope u find something soon as mine progressed up to include my entire legs, then turned painful. Originally told it was pinched nerve and nothing serious. I'm only 50 and is quite debilitating. Former classical pianist, but pn in my hands now has put an end to that. Let me know if you'd like to chat. I get conflicting info. Chiro and neuro is where I'm at now. I don't advise pain dr. There is a new machine non-tens I was offered to try, but my PM dr said not to. Off with his head lol. I'll forward info if u like.

Best of wishes to you, kat
