: 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.
Joe Have you actually been diagnosed with PN? I have tingling in my legs and arms. Sometimes I woke up with my hands actually feeling dead. After ruling out carpal tunnel syndrome, going to a neurologist and having him rule out any proplems with reflexes etc, I'm convinced it has to do with being diagnosed six weeks ago with hypothyroidism. My tsh level was 21.7 If you haven't had a TSH check of your blood you should check and see if you might not have hypothyroidism.
