I just happy I took both Sphingolin and Inosine for the 3 months I did as the BURN is gone from my thigh. Every now and then I may get a tingle but nothing like it was for 5 yrs after hip replacement nerve damage. I had no fears of trying it and glad I took the chance. So many talked about the dangers but I didn't feel that.

Now I'm going to use a Tens unit and see if the numb thigh could be helped...could the nerves be somewhat restored with a Tens.

From what I could find on animal studies (mice), TENS Units actually damage crushed sciatic nerves, especially at high frequencies.

TENs is for blocking pain signals. There is little evidence that any healing is promoted. (this is what my PT said when I had my therapy.)

IFc is used (sometimes in conjunction with ultrasound) to actually promote healing. This treatment at my PT reduced my severe tendon injury in about 3 treatments. The pain remaining was bearable. I was pretty impressed.

On the Tens which I am now using at day 2. I used it on the numb dead thigh area today and could hardly feel it even at the highest number. So I don't have much faith that the Tens will "restore" nerves. But burn/tingle is still gone.

I've been off the Inosine and Sphingolin for a couple yrs now and in recent months the burn and tingle in my thigh, surgery leg, is back. So I'm going back to them, still have some Inosine and will use it but will work to be back on both Nov. 1 and see how it goes.
