It is a progressive disease, but, like others will tell you, you learn to roll with the punches this disease delivers and get back up to live another day. There are things to do to help with the pain and other sensations, show make sure you have an agressive treatment team. Also, be sure to get active in cyber space, because you can learn a lot about this disease, and other treatments used that may help you, too!
I thought only some kinds of PN got worse over time. I thought mine (which is due to spine injury) wouldn't get worse over time?
