Re: Well I got the nerve conduction study results
It's very important that you don't take the fact the that nerve conduction tests were normal convince you that you don't have neuropathy. Small fiber neuropathy usually does not show on those tests. I was only able to get a diagnosis by going to the mayo clinic. The neuro there ordered a thermoregulatory sweat test which showed distal sweat reduction and confirmed her suspicion of sfn. Most neuro's do a quick cold/heat test that's not very acurate at all, even skin biopsy's can be negative depending on where they take the sample. If you don't get answers soon, try to get an appointment at a mayo clinic, or another high quality facility. If you can't get a referal or an appointment mayo has a "no appointment" check in desk, but you need to be prepared to be there for a few days or even a couple of weeks, but it's worth it. Being in pain is bad enough, not knowing the cause is a whole different level of bad.
