neuropathy diagnosis in question
I was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy last month with a nerve conduction study. It was definitive. i went to a podiatrist today, and he said it was not definitive, that I had to have a nerve biospy, that then it would be definitive. I just read that a nerve biopsy is pretty invasive, and not neecessarily definitive. My symptoms are: numb, tingling, shooting pain in my feet, as well as a dull ache in my feet, severe muscle weakness in my legs. I have a lot of trouble walking, and use a cane. My question is: what should I do? I really don't want (nor think it is a good idea) to have a nerve biopsy. I am quite sure I have neuropathy, and have been daignosed to have it. What should I do?
