BRIEFS: Neuropathy support group meets

By March 3, 2011

Do you, or someone you care for, have burning, tingling or numbness in your feet or hands? This may stem from a form of neuropathy that can have many causes.

To learn more from others with similar symptoms and to receive support, attend the next meeting of the Davis Peripheral Neuropathy Information and Support Group from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St. A member will share his personal story in dealing with fibromyalgia and neuropathy.

For more information, call Retta Gilbert at (530) 747-0186 or Mary Sprifke at (530) 756-5102.
