healthydoc :

Hello and thank you for your question.

healthydoc :

As you have peripheral neuropathy, have you see a neurologist to get evaluated?

healthydoc :

Did you have EMG nerve conduction test to evaluate the extent of damage done to your nerves?

healthydoc :

Usually for peripheral neuropathy your doctor needs to prescribe you medication like gabapentin or pregabaling.

healthydoc :

Please get back to me with above information so we can discuss further. Thank you.

okay. you need EMG test which is a nerve conduction test to evaluate the extent of damage done to the nerves. Moreover you can request your doctor to prescribe you medication like gabapentin until you see a neurologist. which will ease the symptoms and will help to to resolve the burining pain. Vibromycin is used to treat bacterial infection and not neuropathic pain.

If you have no further questions than please rate my answer positively. Thank you.
