axonal neuropathy causes
My name's Geraldine and this is my first post. Thank you for reading.
In Oct last year a nerve conduction study showed I had sensory axonal polyneuropathy. I also had positive Romberg's test and absent ankle reflexes. At the time I had no pain, mainly balance and gait probs. Since Feb I have had severe bilateral leg pain as well as inflammatory symptoms (?) - knee joint pain, RLS, psoriasis, mouth ulcers, shivering without fever, hot without fever, malar rash. I have had various blood tests and an MRI brain (to rule out MS) but nothing shows up - my ANA was only weakly positive (80 speckled) My doc admits to having 'run out of ideas', the original neuro dismissed me with '25% of these cases are idiopathic'. I would like to know what caused my neuropathy (in case it's something treatable) and other symptoms, as I think it is now affecting my hands and arms. Another GP suggested CIDP but there is no-one around here with any experience of it. Because I want to get to the bottom of it I feel I am being treated like a hypochondriac. The constant pain and feeling unwell is bad enough without it being devalued/dismissed.
So, dear reader, if this rings any bells with you, I would certainly appreciate your feedback. Thank you.
