$1500 Slipped Through My Hands

In the past four weeks I spent over $1500 on treatments to cure neuropathy caused by antibiotics! Here is a snapshot of those costs.

  • $45 – Reiki Treatment
  • $55 – Therapeutic Massage
  • $150 – Acupuncture Consultation and First Treatment
  • $85 – Acupuncture Treatment
  • $85 – Acupuncture Treatment
  • $255 – Another Acupuncture Consultation and First Treatment
  • $110 – Acupuncture Treatment with Second Acupuncturist
  • $300 – Five Therapeutic Massage Treatments
  • $178.95 – Three Months Worth of Vitamins
  • $30 – Copay to Neurologist
  • $157.48 – General Practitioner Appointment
  • $21.03 – Blood work
  • $3.29 – Blood work

That doesn’t include additional supplements and vitamins. My neurologist wanted to put me on Lyrica which would’ve cost about $50 a month. That would have been a much cheaper route to take, but the drug wouldn’t have cured me. It simply would have masked my pain. I’m crossing my fingers that my health will be restored back to normal. If that occurs it will be worth every penny I paid.

Ouch! Health care can be so expensive! I hope that your treatments help bring an end to your neuropathy really soon!
