Pulsed Radiofrequfency and idiopathic peripheral neuropathic pain in foot.

I was wondering if anyone had lumbar PRF on lower back to relief neuropathic pain in foot.
I could not find any article on the subject.
Thanks for your regards.

Hi.  I remember you from way back, Rahim!  How are you?  So, you have peripheral neuropathy? Do you know the origin of it? Diabetes, vitamin deficiencies can be the culprit and a blood test reveals that.  Or if it is due to a herniated disk, spin or hip issue, a CT or MRI would help reveal that as the cause. They can also do a nerve function test to see how that is impacting things.  Once you know the results of these different tests, it makes a treatment path more clear. PRF is indeed used to control neuropathic peripheral pain. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29871378/   http://www.lifebridgehealth.org/PainCenter/PulsedRadiofrequencyNeuromodulation.aspx  There are literally dozens of articles that talk about success with this treatment.  It just has to be a fit for WHY you have the PN.  
Hello specialmom,
Hi, how R U ? I am so happy to hear from you, I  remember you and your kindness, I don't know if Margy is still active in MH.
Dear mom I am not new with Peripheral Neuropathy indeed it is almost 16 years.
The cause is not cearly known,  I used to work with chemicals, this could be the reason.
I have tried different treatments almost of all types, non worked for me. Thanks for your comment and technical articles regarding uses RF and PRF to relief PN pain, that you send me.
I am in process of my decision using PRF to relief PN pain im my feet.
Unfortunately there is no article on using RF and PRF to relief nerve pain ( not Morton's Neuroma ) in foot but these methods had good and promising results on cases like  pudendal neuralgia, meralgia paresthetica, carpal tunnel syndrome, tarsal tunnel syndrome, and Morton's neuroma, knee pain, neck pain lower back pain and so on.
Thanks again for your sympathetic comment dear Mom
By the way the reason I am not so active in MedHelp is because their site did not have a community on exact issues of Peripheral Neuropathy or Neuropathic  pain.
