Folks anyone with high uric acid and peripheral neuropathy?. I have high uric acid and prescribed 200mg allopurinol for that .. Currently the allopurinol is on hold to see if that is related to my PN.

I tested my Serum UA today and found it to be 7.8 mg/DL (should be 7.2 or below).


I found the link below which describes a possible link between Serum UA and PN

google "can high uric acid cause neuropathy?" and see the results as I cannot post links

My Mood: Suspected PN

The PubMed search "peripheral neuropathy uric acid" retrieves 106 papers. The main link seems to be with diabetic PN.

As far as I can see whether this is correlative or causative is unclear. See https://www.jns-journal.com/article/...18)30194-1/pdf.

Any such studies on uloric (febuxostat) and nerve pain? I was initially prescribed uloric for my gout but discontinued after 6 months partly because it caused some abdominal discomfort and partly because my insurance wont cover it. My doctor switched me over to allopurinol, which I had for a year before neuropathy symptoms surfaced. I am thinking of switching back to uloric .. Better pay from my own pocket than sufferer from this nasty neuropathy..

Default 2 month update

Posting a 2 month update since my suspected PN symptoms started showing up : Symptoms seem to have lessened a bit , but not completely gone. I still get the odd pins and needles and tingling , burning sensations , mostly at night around bedtime , but it calms down after that and does not really affect sleep. My regimen, as you all know, is purely supplements based: R-ALA , Acetyl L- Carnitine , benfotoamine and a generic mens multivit. I also take levothyroxine for hypothyroidism and allopurinol for gout.

Is this normal progression for a PN ? a period of initial flareup followed by a reduction of symptoms? what path can we expect this to take in future? I have e neuro appt later this month. Not sure what to ask him . Should I ask for any bloodwork or any nerve conduction studies? Thanks a lot
