What now?

I recently had a skin biopsy done and the results came in today--small fiber neuropathy. I also have Hashimoto disease (thyroid) and Restless Legs Syndrome. I was diagnosed several years ago with fibromyalgia but now wonder if it is the neuropathy instead. I go back to my doctor in three months and until then he has me on Horizant for both the RLS and the small fiber neuropathy. I just need information on what this is and how it affects others, what do you do about it--just general info. So far the internet hasn't been any help.

Like Cocoa I'm interested in what symptoms you are having.

What type of doctor are you seeing in 3months?

Did they do any other kind of tests on you?

I had PN since 07 and recently RLS...I take 3600mg of Neurontin for my PN and Pramipexole 0.50mg tabs before bed for my RLS.

Neither "fix" my issues but it makes me be able to get out of bed and make it through my day.

Hope you find the answers you are looking for and there are some great people w/information on this board.

Hope you have a pain free Friday and great weekend.
J
