I took the device out in October and have spiraled out of control ever since.

I will do or go anywhere. This disease has ruined my life. I know it is rare and seldom listed because most people are not aware of it. I see all types of diabetic neuropathies pain are covered. They are well know conditions. But if you research Trugy Neuralgia you will see it is far more painagul than the neuropathic pains you’ve listed. Please please make this available to me before it’s too late !
