Posted on: August 12, 2007

I have been suffering from sensory neuropathy for the past 5 years. I also have been taking kava kava for the past 15 years to help me sleep. Is it possible that the kava has been a factor in causing the neuropathy?

Yes, it is possible that kava kava is a factor in your neuropathy, since kava affects the nervous system and should not be taken continuously for longer than 3 months.
