Re: whats the difference??
Sorry to hear of your pain[s] and associated symptoms. There are different diagnostic tests for neuropathy and als, and as someone else pointed out, very different diseases. Your primary doc should refer you to a neurologist for testing. Both diseases are rough, but ALS is certainly far worse, so you should try to find out as soon as you can, if you have a PN you might have a type that responds to treatment. Best of luck to you. Paulo
