Comment from: Faith, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: July 17

I was diagnosed with aplastic anemia. I had to go through chemotherapy, radiation and receive a transplant twice (since my first one failed), which caused my peripheral neuropathy. I have tried the “scrambler” where they send electronic signals to the nerves and tell it to stop being painful. It worked for the day but I would have to come to the doctor often to get it to work. Soaking in warm water helps and well as 0.5-1 percent menthol in Gold Bond.
