bilateral neurapathy

I have been diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy in both my arms and legs.  I was in an accident that broke so many vertebrae in my spine and neck it would talk three pages to discuss all of them and all of the treatments and surgery, I am a mess in other words.  There are times when I do not know if a foot is on the floor and will think it is, try to walk and down I go.  So I look at my feet when I walk.  My hands go crazy on me.  Much to my dogs delight, I can try to carry a meal to the table and not even know that it has fallen out of my hand until it hits the floor!  I have taken Neurontin and Keppra and with both, the side effects were so bad, I had to discontinue use.  PLEASE HELP.  Is there ANYTHING I can do to stop this.  When they "fall asleep" tingling, pins and needles and numbness, at least I know what to do,  I need help for when I do not have these warning signs.  I live alone and it really gets rough sometimes.
