The Neuropathy Association Passes on the Torch
to the Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy

We would like to assure our many supporters who have contacted us regarding the closing of The Neuropathy Association that it does not affect our mission at the NSN. We are proud supporters of the Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy and will assist them in their expanded role in fighting neuropathy.

Our mission remains firm and has actually expanded.

We are committed to working with all neuropathy orangizations, medical professionals, patient advocates, and support group leaders in building a national and international network targeted to helping those sufferring from neuropathy and supporting the medical community in finding effective treatments, and ultimately a cure for Neuropathy.

One Man's Journey with Neuropathy

His nightmare began in 1969 – one year after leaving the Vietnam War. Symptoms of autonomic and polyneuropathy neuropathy affected his breathing with upper body paralysis that brought him to his knees and affected other parts of his body; mysterious chest pains, electric shocks, painful skin, physical exhaustion, unexplained silent tachycardia, urinary and digestive problems all contributing to his nightmare.

An Army officer, he struggled for 18 years with severe electric shocks that began, uncharacteristically, in his upper body. Occasionally the symptoms would disappear and he would think the nightmare was over but it was not to be – the cycle would always begin again. The loss of stamina and periods of total exhaustion – the perception by others that it must be psychological – left him unable to continue. His distinguished military career came to a screaming halt. With medical records that contain many negative comments about his condition and his cycle of pain and symptoms, he retired from the Army in 1987. His dream was over and he hoped his nightmare would go away! <-read more->

Welcome to The Neuropathy Support Network. We are here to Help!

The purpose of the Neuropathy Support Network is to provide volunteer support, guidance, counseling and information to neuropathy patients. Our mission includes creating a coalition of neuropathy patient advocates and neuropathy organizations that neuropathy patients can turn to for help; and to raise awareness among physicians and medical organizations of the seriousness of neuropathy, the suffering that neuropathy patients endure, and awareness of the possible treatments and medicines that exist.

If you suffer from Neuropathy, or have a friend or loved one who does, we are here to help. Go to the Contact Us page and fill out the contact form with your neuropathy question(s) and we will get back to you. Questions are answered in the order in which they are received.


A human figure stands alone in a large field, buried waist deep in grass, arms reaching out in lonely isolation, seeking answers. Millions of neuropathy patients reach out blindly toward some sense of help, from “somewhere.”

The human figure symbolizes many patients, experiencing neuropathy in an isolated world of strange symptoms. Feeling buried under negative opinions, loss of purpose and friends, often alone in their struggle, with courage they reach out. In this simple act they find hope in a network of patients and a few professionals.


The purpose of the Coping with Chronic Neuropathy DVD is to help others reach out, find answers, spread hope and raise funds for neuropathy research.

Discussed is the power of faith, increasing your neuropathy knowledge, getting and giving patient support, and learning to adapt to the changes neuropathy brings to lives - while remaining focused on getting help for your neuropathy.

Answers to your neuropathy questions.
