Common side effects of Rythmol (Propafenone) can include:

dry mouth
loss of appetite
unusual taste in the mouth (a metallic taste)
gastrointestinal upset
blurred vision
uncontrollable shaking of a part of the body
difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
difficulty with coordination
CNS disturbances such as dizziness

Some side effects can be serious. If you experience any of these symptoms, call your doctor immediately:

difficulty breathing
chest pain
new or worsening irregular heartbeat
slow, fast, or pounding heartbeat
swelling of the hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs
sudden, unexplained weight gain
skin rash
unexplained fever, chills, weakness, or sore throat
hypersensitivity reactions
lupus-like syndrome

About 20% of patients discontinued the drug due to side effects.

From what I could gather, It sounds like you are experiencing a number of side effects in addition to the neuropathy. In it were me, I would consider going to see a naturopathic doctor so you can receive alternative natural medication that doesn't consist of such harsh side effects.

Do you still get the burning sensation even when you don't take the Rythmol?

I am taking Rythmol for a-fib and am familiar with all of the known side effects; I do not have any of them, but I developed neuropathy; and after numerous tests, neurologist doesn't know what caused it. I am on Gabapentin to relieve the pain. I was just wondering if there is such a thing as a Rythmol buildup over time as I'm investigating all possibilities. I have seen a "progressive" GP and tried the "natural" approach of vitamin B12 without success.
