Peripheral Neuropathy

I have peripheral neuropathy and I have had it for 10 years. I have numbness in the feet which affects my balance .and sometimes leg pain and for the pain I take Gabapentin The neurologist which I see anually has told me that there is no cure for it in my case as I do not have Diabetes.

Thanks to ArthurG for the suggestion of K2-7 as mentioned in the video talk at 1:15. It appears the study was into those suffering from PN caused by Diabetes. Like 321alberic, my PN has no known cause, but I shall try K2-7 as symptoms are particularly bad at the moment. (Can't write with a pen for more than 20 minutes a day.)

I git same answer as i do not have Diabetes so many of the meds would be useless to me. The last 1 did at 30 least blood tests I never heard of, all normal, except high B 12, which for us is good. I take 2500 that gets absorbed when I chew them. I am just looking for answers.
