Sometimes these bastards change their underwriting and the emails get lost in my spam.
Yes, I have the newest Application for IL/WI/IA and that is the language now concerning Neuropathy EVER. On this post on page 1 someone else mentioned the same thing too. I assume SC's Application is not State specific
. Might want to check their website.

It has changed my formerly taken for granted active life and I have ok days and 'weird' days that I'm still getting used to. Lyrica takes the edge off my various deep pains and cramps in both feet not simutaneously, but doesn't make up for my poor equilibrium or lack of energy or endurance. Not complaining though. I don't have it as bad as others who suffer much more with it. Just sort of educating you as you asked, not looking for sympathy.
