Is There A Treatment Or Cure For Neuropathy That Uses Vitamins Or Supplements
Maybe: In cases of neuropathy related to vitamin deficiency, supplementaiton can reverse or slow neuropathy. Vitamin B12 and folate (folic acid) are the most common, and a once-daily super b complex vitamin (or B12 shot) is often recommended.

A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more

No matter the cause, if you're vitamin d deficient an over the counter 2, 000 units of vitamin d3 daily is a very effective treatment with almost zero potential risk unless you have an elevated calcium level (which should be evaluated by your doc)/. ...Read more
Probably none: There are no objective, scientific studies that i've seen showing benefits of supplements for tympanic nerve damage. I frequently will take a balanced multivitamin plus some extra vitamin c for general health. Some people think a balanced b complex supplement helps with the nervous system, and some think omega 3s help with brain cell stabilization. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
