I'm usually all over the sites for Peripheral Neuropathy. Had RLS and PMLS for years. Had many EMG's. Finaly after many of those over a few years something showed up in one area only on an EMG. I went from there to a Med. University and was given a nerve conduction test which may be called a QST. Anyway no needles are required for this one. It was found that I had a Sensory Peripheral Neuropathy big time. It is of the Axonal nerve endings and does not have a wonderful prognosis. At John Hopkins there is a Doctor reported to have an interest in this combination. Thinks there may be a correlation between RLS and PN. On the PN sites there are so many people who say they had RLS for some time. I take Elavil and Neurontin and it helps. Some of you may want to talk to your Neurologist about being tested for PN. Found early may be helpful. I think the Doc. at John Hopkins in Dr. Polydiefikis or something similar.
