    Excuse me, but I am new to this. What's this R ALA everyone seems to be talking about?

    Alpha-lipoic acid. Google it or check out Amazon.

    GP sent me to his dn in the practice and she could feel a pulse in my foot. Feeling was weird as she moved dip around strange sensation area (below toes, to side of foot). She feels no total numbness there. It is far worse at night and when in bed settling for sleep. Is neuropathy common to be worse at night?
    Should I ask to see my gp again or should I ignore this weird sensation and wobbly legs with inbalance when walking? I don't want to come over to my gp as over anxious. I did when I had a heart scare recently but I'm a lot calmer now.
