Re: Tingling/burning neuropathy with no loss of feeling

The neuropathy seems to be aggravated by periods of sitting, especially driving. A hot bath or exercise, even moderate activity like working in the garage seems to alleviate it to a large degree.

I will consider a nerve biopsy. Thank you for your reply.
I did not say Nerve Biopsy, those are a bit risky and can do some damage, what I mentioned is a Skin Biopsy which looks at the level of nerve fibers in your skin and its much less invasive than a nerve biopsy some people get nerve damage from a Nerve Biopsy so avoid that.
