Re: peripheral nueropathy
Sorry to hear you are having problems. Did they check your cervical (neck) spine for stenosis also? I have much the same symptoms in my legs, feet, etc., which were caused by spinal cord compression at the C7 level. I also have spinal stenosis in my lumbar which causes my left leg to be weak. It could be that the nerve problems are all related to your spine. My damage went on too long and became permanent. I had surgery to stabilize my cervical spine and take the pressure off. Tests included MRI and EMG, with surgery by a neurosurgeon who specialized in spine surgery. It took evaluation by the surgeon to really pinpoint the problem. The neurologist I saw first, referred me on after the MRI. My problems started when I turned
60. Stenosis and degenerative disc disease comes with age. There are many posts on the Spinal Cord board relating to symptoms. Some people have a lot of pain, but I mostly had the nerve symptoms or parasthesia, stinging, numbness, prickling, itching, burning. It varies. Hope you get some answers.
