I am the webmaster, editor and moderator and thus responsible for all information displayed on this website. I am not a doctor or medical professional but am a long-term neuropathy sufferer, teacher and writer of articles on the subject for other websites. My aim is to provide as much information as possible in one place, for other people who either have neuropathy and HIV, or are interested in the subject.

and 'The Body' Blog:


The aim is to exchange news, information, experiences, tips and hints about the disease and its treatment. There is relatively little information on the web for patients who have both HIV and neuropathy, so maybe something you read here or on the website will help you live with the condition more comfortably. All constructive, helpful (or even downright funny... we all need a laugh!) comments are welcome.

  3. It’s been almost three years since I had to quit working due to the pain of my neuropathy. I have a SSDI hearing in a month, I have an attorney representing me. If I don’t get a decision in my favor, I don’t know what I’ll do. I am at my wits end with the government screwing me around on this. Any suggestions on winning my case would be appreciated. The depression from all of this is almost unbearable. Thanks for any suggestions.

  4. Try reading these posts here on the blog - they may offer some more information
    Good luck
