I was taking Thalomid, ultimately at 200 mg. I started experiencing neuropathy in my feet and hands and alerted my doctor. During my period of taking Thalomid and Dexamethasone, I achieved very good results. In fact, myeloma was diagnosed 6/06 and in March a bone marrow test showed normal results. I stopped the Thalomid 2 months ago.I now take Dexamethasone once a month for 4 days at 20 mg. per day. While I am not a doctor, as I learn more about neuropathy, I do not feel that my doctors gave enough consideration to my neuropathy concerns. At any rate, my condition worsened last week while I was taking Dexamethasone. My first question then is, "Has Dexamethasone affected anyone's neuropathy?" Secondly, "How long has it taken for anyone's neuropathy to improve?" I have been taking Gabapentin at 600 mg twice a day for 3 weeks and I don't think it's doing any good. Thanks for "listening."
