About 4 weeks ago I developed a severe thiamine deficiency caused by a malabsorption issue. This has brought about the most painful neuropathy of my feet and toes. I have lyrica for the pain but it does little other than make me dizzy. The pain is constant and varies from a burning to electric shocks and a sudden jolting of my feet.
I have been told it'll recover in eight weeks and I know some people here are permanently hindered so sorry if I offend anybody or annoy people. I just wanted to know how you cope with your pain?
I sleep maybe two hours a night, broken up by strong pains. I can no longer walk properly and I am rapidly losing weight. I feel so guilty on my husband as I wake up screaming most nights and I don't think he has slept since I got this.
Any advice would be welcomed, thank you.
