in need of support
A bit of history first. I was a 57 year old healthy woman who was in a car accident Dec.09. I started noticing both feet cramping, extremely painful & going numb. This progressed all through 2010 & 2011 with a MRI, 2 x EMG tests with normal results, bone scan & xrays of both feet done. Many Doctors seen. All leading to idiopathic polyneuropathy.
Both feet are numb & always in pain, the toes do not move unless you manually move them. My hands are now cramping & tingling with pain especially at night.
I have just had a sural nerve biobsy above my right ankle , 3 days ago & I am experiencing electrical shocks up my leg & down my foot. It's awful, the pain makes you scream. This was done to reveal the type of Neuropathy I have.
I just want to know what else this disease will do & where is it going in my body. My feet,legs & now my hands. Why the electrical shocks? I know I was to have permanent numbness by the incision, but my entire ankle & top of my foot is numb. I am scared.
