I swear it has more to do with the weather, foods or somehting other than neuropathy. I have had blood tests done, thyroid checked, etc. Can anyone help with this.
The small fibre's job is to recognize cold, heat and pain, when they are not working right they send confused signals to the brain, how the brain interpets that confused signal can differ.
With my small fibre damage, when the day got hotter so would my feet, high sugary carbs use to aggravate the heck out my feet.
Gluten sensitivity is something you might want to check out, it can affect the peripheral nerves.
