Nerve Damage Supplements working for me

I had an Anterior Hip Replacement in 2010 and it's been short of a living nightmare.

One thing I was left with was Femoral Nerve Damage at the area of incision. I've heard that about 15% who do the anterior can end up with this Nerve Damage.

So I'm going along in misery, whole thigh is numb and burning/tingling. This has been going on a long time. Talking to a naturopathic pharmacy I frequent, I asked "do you suggest anything for nerve damage?"...

She brought me 4 and I ended up buying two of them: Sphingolin and Inosine. These are working and burn/tingle is hardly felt and it's been about 2 months on these. So I wanted to share this in case anyone deals with nerve pain issues. Do research of course, it's out there.

Numbness is there and may be forever, nerves may not restore themselves...

Warning: Before you try any supplement, herb or over the counter item, please consult with your doctor to make sure you get their approval. The natural products can work wonders for some, but no two individuals or medical conditions are alike. What works for one, may cause trouble for another .. Ron DiLauro, Spine-Health System Moderator
