Any new holistic treatments for PN?

Just wondering if there's anything "new" out there for peripheral neuropathy. Mine is progressing very slowly but I'm "hoping" to put a total halt to it. How closely related is it to MS. Does exercise harm or help. Seems if I do too much physical it aggravates (at this stage). Sleep has been much improved tho with extra magnesium. Now I'm looking for any and all nutritional or other ways to improve this condition without drugs.

Hi there!

MS is a demyelinating disorder and though the two may present similarly, they are distinct conditions with different management options. Exercise doe not may a difference to the neuropathy, though it may help improve muscle strength and reduce morbidity. A few cases of neuropathy such as medication related or secondary to micronutrient deficiencies may be partially or completely treatable. A few recently developed drugs may also help in improvement of peripheral neuropathy. I would suggest consulting a neurologist for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
