After several months trying to heal my sesamoiditis I started getting sporadic tingling sensations all over my foot, and a numb feeling around the sesamoid and along the inside of my big toe. After reading this post I subsequently bought neuro-eze with the hope that it would alleviate these symptoms. However, I have been hesitant to use it because the description on the bottle says that it helps with neuropathic pain, and I do not have any nerve pain and I'm not entirely sure if what I have would be defined as neuropathy. Would you still recommend to using it for my symptoms of tingling and numbness?
Dr Blake' s comment:
Yes, it is a good starting point for the neuropathy (abnormal nerve sensations). Patients with neuropathy get just numbness/tingling, just pain, or a combination of the 2, but it is still neuropathy. Neuro-Eze in my experience works on 50% of those cases. That being said, please have a neurologist or physiatrist look into the cause of this problem. Is it coming from your back because you limped for a while? Did the swelling around the sesamoid trigger some excitable nervous activity that now needs to calm down? Is it a totally separate problem called peripheral neuropathy related to pre-Diabetes, Vit B12 deficiency, osteopenia, etc? I hope this helps you. Rich
