Dear Joe, Have your been diagnosed with pn or is it suspected as the cause of your problems, by you or your doctor? I have had numbness/tingling/pins and needles/strange senstations for 13 months now and all the doctors I have seen and all the tests I have taken show nothing. Have not had mri yet due to claustrophobia. My doctor did mention stress, but this seems to be the diagnosis when a real diagnosis can not be reached. My dr. went so far as to deny me a lyme disease test. I will be seeking another md who will order the test though. These symptoms we have are very frustrating to us and I suppose to the drs who can not give us a clue to the cause or possible cure. I myself feel very depressed. Please keep getting tested, check the internet for suggestions. Anyone out there that has any advice or suggestions for me, please, please send and e-mail. I find more info on these boards than I do from my drs. who stop caring the minute you leave the office. Good luck to everyone. Sincerely, Gina: I have been struggling with PN for about 8 months. I am CONVINCED that anxiety and stress are the cause
: of my symptoms. In my case, physical tests were inconclusive and I was taking all the right supplements
: , etc. My job was stressful, as I was teaching school. I had to withdraw because of stress symptoms.
: Believe me, they can be very deceptive. The bottom line is that stress manifested in my case as neuropathy with
: burning tingling and restlessness in both feet. I have been learning to accept my limitations, and have been practicing stress
: reduction skills. This has included a job shift, and I am currently looking at other lines of work
: . I would be interested in responses to this.
