PN man can't jump
Oct 3, 2003

My PN has been under pretty good control for about four years with doragesic patches. But when I try to play volleyball or run my feet kill me. Any suggestions?

Response from Dr. Henry

If you are still on any HIV or other drugs which can aggravate peripheral neuropathy then consideration for switching off the possible offending med should be a high priority. Neurotin can be helpful for some patients. Evaluation be an interested neurologist and/or physical therapist often gives me some good ideas about what can be helpful in individual situations. KH

Hamstring soreness and tightness a side effect?
