    Just diagnosed..help

    Hi to everyone:

    I am feeling very frustrated right now, but have hope that someone on these boards can help me with insight, experience and knowledge.

    I've been having pain in my legs for years, with the last 2 years being the most difficult. I saw my Neurologist today to discuss the results of my punch biopsy. I was informed that I have small fiber neuropathy.....with "significantly reduced epidermal nerve fiber density".

    I guess, in some small way, it's a relief to have a diagnosis....but I am still feeling lost and frustrated. Here's why....

    While I've been seeing this particular Neurologist for 3 months, this is the second Neurologist I've seen. The first one told me...."Nothing else I can really do for you....I don't know what is causing your pain". Okay. (1st emg showed femoral neuropathy, 2nd one showed normal results ?) I literally thought I was going insane. Why on earth am I having so much pain? Cut to 6 months later, when my primary doctor sent me to my current Neurologist.

    I'm looking for ANY advice, thoughts, insights into this frustrating world of sfn. Today, when I tried to explain how uncomfortable I am....my Neurologist said "Don't worry....you need to give me time. I am the only one who's been able to properly diagnose you". He proceeded to show me all of his accomplishments and credentials ornamenting the walls of his office. It really rubbed me the wrong way....as if to say....I am the only doctor who has the knowledge and experience to treat you...or I know best.

    Just a little history....I do have very low vitamin B levels....am currently on 18 months of vitamin B injections. I started Lyrica 3 months ago...changed dosage today to 300 mg daily. I also take tizanidine 3 tablets at bedtime. I explained that while this is helping me get to sleep, I continue to wake up every night by 3 am with severe pain and cramping in my legs and feet. "No worries...give me time to help you" was the response I got.

    He also ordered an mri of the brain....scheduled for this coming Monday. He said that now we know I have sfn.....now, what is the cause. Apparently, he is checking for MS.

    I feel as though I am rambling.....but I guess that's how I'm feeling. He said sfn is very painful.....when I tried to explain (again) how much pain I'm having, this is what he did.....He left the room and brought back print-outs showing some studies that patients who are given pain meds, or narcotics, to treat chronic pain....get compromised cognitive issues over time. Also...which he showed me with charts....patients who take narcotics for chronic pain have been proven to be responsible for a huge rise in emergency room visits.....I guess looking for more narcotics. I was SO taken back by this so called lesson (or lecture) from him....I felt awful for even expressing how badly I've been feeling, which is not an easy thing for me to do.

    My head is spinning from everything that took place at my appointment. I don't know where to turn. This Neurologist is.....trying to find the word.....arrogant? I don't know. I'm not feeling comfortable with him at all, yet I'm not sure what to do. I love my primary doctor, but clearly he wouldn't handle a diagnosis like mine. I'm struggling with whether or not to make an appointment to see my pcp, explain how I'm feeling about this Neurologist.....take things from there??? Just feeling extremely lost. I was so hoping I'd walk away from this appointment with a plan of some kind to manage the pain. Once again, I walked away feeling frustrated and degraded for trying to explain how much pain I'm in.

    I'm open to any and all opinions or advice, truly. Thank you to anyone who takes the time to read this......and especially to those who respond.

    Jen

    Re: Just diagnosed..help

    Hi Jen..

    First you are NOT alone..I've had PN since 07 and in that time I'm on my 4th Neurologist....I've had MANY blood and Zap tests....had a spinal tap and #4 removed some of my left ankle nerve for a biopsy....all those showed that..Yup I have PN...I take 3600mg of Neurontin(I've been on and off Lyrica twice and prefer Neurontin) which does NOT take the pain away just makes me be able to work.

    I wouldn't be surprised if I see #5 this year....after all those tests/apts #4 could only give me "I can't treat you until we know why you have PN"...I was not happy...thought that was his job/why I had all those tests done.

    All I can say is do NOT settle...if you don't like the Neurologist...go see another until you find one that you are comfortable w/and help you get relief. You deserve the best treatment available to you and you have to fight for it.

    I realize I have PN..it isn't going away...and after being mad/upset and "hiding" from life/friends for a few years I'm trying a new attitude....I try to make the best of my day...I can only play the hand I was dealt....I feel lucky to be able to get out of bed and go to work...I'm VERY thankful I have my wife K, family, great friends and this board to help me get on w/my life....K has been a rock and deserves to get out more..don't sit around and feel sorry for myself.

    Try and be positive and get the treatment you deserve...we all deserve to live the best life that we can.

    Hope your Tuesday was pain free and keep posting.

    Re: Just diagnosed..help

    I have been there. I understand. You have your diagnosis, and assuming the brain scan doesn't show anything unusual you may never know what's causing your sfn. What you really need is a GOOD pain management specialist. Don't be afraid of pain medicine, even narcotics, if that's what it takes. But very few neurologists are going to be willing to take you where you need to go to get your life back. Three years after onset I have a neurostimulator implant and I still have to take medicine, and I still have pain. But it's bearable and there really is life after sfn. Walk away from this doctor. Find one who understands. Sfn is tough enough without the bs. Good luck.

    Re: Just diagnosed..help

    Hi Jen and welcome to this forum, with the low vitamin B was it vitamin B12 you were low on ? as this itself can be a major cause of neuropathy, it can cause damage to both small fibre and large nerves also can damge nerves in the central nervous system, nerves heal very slowly can take many months to years depending on the amount of damage.
    Also have you had a glucose tolerance test, to test for prediabetes or full blown diabetes ? should be one of the first tests done for neuropathy, an over night fasting glucose test is not good enough.

    regards

    Re: Just diagnosed..help

    Hi Jen - I've had SFN for 3 years, and I well remember how hard it is in the beginning. Actually my neurologist, who I am still with, treated me like I was loony (imagine how degraded I felt) in the beginning and also had an "arrogance" problem. Because I recognized that he had great credentials and was highly intelligent, and because my primary care doctor encouraged me to give the neuro a second chance, I wrote the neuro a letter explaining my situation and what I expected of him (I was very "sweet" in my letter to play up to his ego problem). Well, next visit I even took a friend for moral support, and guess what, it was a whole different situation. Anyway, I and the neuro get along great now, and also guess what, I have very little pain.

    One thing that seems in your neuro's favor is he did take a lot of time to explain things to you and also he did actually diagnose your SFN, which too many neuros overlook. Perhaps he has more in mind for pain control for you, but seeing as he just now raised your Lyrica dosage, he wouldn't try another new drug at the same time. But, you need to go with what works for you, and if you feel you can't work with this neuro, move on to another. You deserve to get the understanding and treatment you need.

    By way of meds, there are many, many, meds short of narcotic drugs to be tried before trying narcotics. Sounds like you haven't tried an antidepressant yet. No this isn't for depression, it's for neuropathic pain. We just had a different neurologist speak to our Desert Neuropathy Support Group, and he gave the best description I've heard yet of why antidepressants work for neuropathic pain. Coincidentally he said Cymbalta is the best of the antidepressants for neuropathy--Cymbalta is what I take and to which I attribute much of my freedom from pain.

    Do hope you check for pre-diabetes if you haven't yet as Aussie suggested.

    Hugs to you, and do let us all know how you are doing. - Ruby

    Re: Just diagnosed..help

    Thank you all so very, very much for your responses. The people on this board are amazing.

    To answer some of your questions....yes, I've tried several antidepressants, including Cymbalta. I've also gone through physical therapy during the phase of seeing my first Neurologist. I was on Neurontin for about 7 months, and while I didn't like the side effects, I stayed on it to give it a good try. When I started seeing my current Neurologist, I was changed to Lyrica.

    As far as my vitamin B levels, yes it is the vitamin B-12 that is low. Doctor said it may have been low for years and years. He said it takes about 5 years for your body to be depleted of sufficient levels of vitamin B-12.

    I was in fact tested for glucose levels, especially because my mom died from complications of diabetes 2 years ago. My results were "borderline" - it will be retested in the near future. At the same time, I was tested for several other things, the only other abnormal result was cholesterol and triglycerides. I am currently on meds for that....my dad had history of the same thing.

    I hope I've answered your questions....if it helps with any advice, I'm all ears. I truly want to thank each and every one of you who took the time to respond to me. Your words brought much needed comfort to me. This is an extremely difficult thing to even begin to explain to someone who isn't going through it. I am trying to decide on whether or not to talk to my primary doctor......he is easy to talk to, unlike my Neurologist. Maybe he can give me some guidance.

    Jen

    Re: Just diagnosed..help

    Hi again Jen - You sound like a very together person, and I am sorry this happened to you. Also sorry the antidepressants and other meds haven't worked for you. FYI, neurotin is safely used up to 3600 mg a day (built up to that level slowly). Perhaps you were at too low a level for you. If weight gain is the side effect you didn't like, you may have the same problem with Lyrica. A pain management doctor might be more helpful at this point as to meds for pain. As to cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, people taking them are 14 times more likely to develop neuropathy, so you may want to talk to your doctor about an alternative to taking a statin drug if that is what you are on. Also, I don't know much about diabetes, but if you are already identified as borderline diabetic, I might guess that is considered prediabetic, which in itself can cause neuropathy. Aussie can give you a lot of info on the ins and outs of this. Hugs - Ruby

    Re: Just diagnosed..help

    My PN was caused through prediabetes & low B12, i do not suffer with any symptoms these days but it took a long time to heal the nerves properly.
    There are plenty of docs out there still believe that you have to have full blown diabetes for a long time before nerve damage happens, this is not true in all people, some diabetics never get nerve damage even with uncontrolled sugars but others only need above normal sugar levels over time to damage their nerves, the lows also damage nerves.
    When i was told i was Prediabetic, i went on a low carb high fibre diet to get my sugars back down to within normal range and of course i didn't want to become diabetic 2, i got a blood glucose meter and measured my blood constantly to see what foods affected my levels, years on even these days i still check my sugars, you don't want to go above 140 - 2 hours after a meals.
    I have to go now but i have more info if your interested.

    Re: Just diagnosed..help

    Thank you so much Ruby for your kind words and your insights. When I was taking the Neurontin, I slowly titrated up to 2600 mg daily. I had a very difficult time on it...always felt extremely tired on it. I never wanted to take my next dose because I was still feeling so listless from my previous dose. It never get better in the 7 months I was on it. I was taken off of it over time, and was glad to be done with it. I'm happy to hear that it works so well for some people, I wish it did for me. I seem to have the same experience with the Lyrica, which is why I only take it at bedtime. About a month ago, my neurologist told me to take a dose at dinner. I tried it for a while, couldn't do it. I really have no idea why my body reacts to these type of meds like this. Everyone says the tiredness wears off, but it doesn't seem to happen with me. While I told my neurologist about this, he just added more doses during the day. I told him that we had discussed this same thing at my prior appt - his response was exactly, "You need to listen to me. You try this....you'll be fine", and then he flashes a big smile at me and repeats, "You'll be fine". I sunk in my chair feeling like I had just back talked to my principal.

    As far as the cholesterol med, I'm on Lipitor, which is indeed a statin drug like you mentioned. I have only been on it for a month or so....and was told this would be a trial period of 3 months. My liver will be tested at that 3 month mark, as well as my cholesterol levels. I was also told that it can cause muscle cramps, which I already have, so it's hard for me to tell whether or not the Lipitor is affecting that. The Lipitor may be changed, I don't know.

    Aussie....thanks to you as well for your tips and experience with the diabetes issues. I know I will be watched closely because of my family history.

    After much thought...I did decide I'd like to sit and talk with my primary doctor. When I went in today for my vitamin B-12 injection, I talked to his nurse and she encouraged me to come in and talk with my doctor. I am seeing him tomorrow afternoon. Now I am trying to determine how to approach this. I guess I've never told one doctor that I'm unhappy with another doctor. I worked for a group of physicians for many years.....I realize they tend to "stick together"...kind of an undisclosed clique of sorts. I don't anticipate anything other than genuine help and concern, which is why I respect and trust him so much.....it just makes me nervous. Any pointers or advice for this little journey??

    Thanks again to all of you......I've learned so much by reading your threads.

    Jen

    Re: Just diagnosed..help

    Hi Risingparrot, it seems like Jens neurologist wasn't alarmed about the borderline or prediabetic diabetes diagnoses, but this is typical of docs and neuros that don't keep up to date with the latest neurological findings, there are a lot of once thought idiopathic cases that are now found that borderline diabetes was the initial causes or contributing factor of their nerve damage.
    It certainly isn't always the cause but should make the alarm bells go off in the docs mind, it is a real possibility that should be addressed not only as a possible nerve damage factor but the heading towards becoming a full blown diabetic which can happen at any time, whilst at borderline diabetes stage this can be sometimes reveresed with diet,exercise and if needed loss of weight.

    In the many months after correcting my sugars i had flaring of increasing symptoms as the nerves were trying to heal, the nerves were trying to send signals to the central nervous system but as they are damaged the mind misinterps' them creating like confused signals but over time these flares decreased in severity, thats when i knew for sure on was on the right road, about 3 years later all symptoms were gone, thank god and my neuro too

    Low B12 is a real concern as well but will have to go again.

    Re: Just diagnosed..help

    Aussie....that is awesome!! I'm so happy for you.

    I hope someone else reading this can clue their doctors in and get the same results that you did.

    I'd LOVE for one day to be able to get rid of the constant pain but I also know that those odds aren't high. BUT I continue to try and have more days of me being positive then those bad days that we all know happen.

    Thanks so much for posting your story...I'm glad that there is a light at the end of the tunnel for some.

    Hope all have a great pain free day.

    have you tried nortriptliene? i was on neurontin it was helping but when the doses were being increased so was my weight and the swelling of my feet had to stop now on nortrptyliene 125mg a night that was increased of course started with 25mg. firts tried anitripline but that made me too groggy in the morning. this is just the medicine from the neurologist i also take pain medication from the pain doctor

    Re: Just diagnosed..help

    Hello, Jen...i read your post. I cannot believe your doctor doesn't want to give you pain medication that wll help, other than Lyrica. I have had burning pain in both legs for years. To begin with, had to go through the testing and the general medicines that didn't much help, similar to you. My primary doctor sent me to pain management doctor. They started me on oxycontin, because i was not getting results from Hydrocodone from Primary doctor for chronic pain any more. Then, it was changed to Fentanyl, although I didn't really want them,the patches. Pills or capsules are much easier to control what you take on worst days, etc. I was told I had peripheral neuropathy, supposedly caused from back problems. I had to retire from work because it was getting best of me, especially at night. You can't manage patches as well, because they are meant to stay on all the time. It does not stop all pain, and the patches do not help acute pain much. But, I have to say, it did allow me to function much better and I still have them. My insurance would not pay for them in August unless I paid $212, Sept. $346, Oct. $390, due to doughnut gap thing. Well, I couldn't afford them, but did get August prescription filled. I wrote to the co,, but it didn't help. It was bad because this type medicine you can't just stop all of a sudden, as you probably know.

    I was also given Lyrica, after i could not tolerate Neurontin. But, ins. wouldn't cover brand name Lyica, so now I take Lamictal, in generic form, to help the burning type pain, though the samples of Lyrica I tried seemed to be a little better. Maybe it is coincidence, that my legs have been burning a lot more lately, plus having the arteries problem. Seems like it would be worse in just leg with blocked arteries, but both my legs are bothering me more these days. It hurts to just touch my legs. Does yours do this? I have my next reg. appt. with my reg dr. next week. He is the only one I have seen for years because he took over my case, so I wouldn't have to travel 100 miles to pain management dr. I have no idea what started all this. I played softball for many years and have always been active enough. I enjoy doing yard work. I do feel tired more lately, and I wonder if that is related to circulation problems. I don't want the artery surgery, but mmight have to. even though foot is better, it is still numb on bottom and feels like something tight is around mmy ankle going under my foot. Hurts if I stay on feet too much. I can sleep now, most of time. I just hope it doesn't morph into a heart attack or stroke, which I've read could happen..

    I hope you are feeling better from neuropathy, and if not, you find a pain management doctor, especially if you are still trying to work..So sorry for length of this post. Take care & God Bless...kittyamazing
    I recently saw a magazine article stating that neuropathy is caused by poor circulation in legs. I thought it was just nerve related somehow But, coincidentally, this past June, I had a very numb and painful left foot, caused by two blocked arteries in my left leg. I spoke of that in PAD post on this site. i had none of the risk factors for getting blocked arteries. The doctor I was sent to after the doppler ultrasound testing, wanted to immediately jump in and do the invasive type balloon/stent surgery. I had read where taking certain OTC medicines, along with chelation type medicine, might help some people, so I decided to do that. My foot is much better than it was in June & July, it was one of most painful things I ever went through.

    Re: Just diagnosed..help

    Well, I'm so happy to know that I'm not the only one that thinks she's going crazy. I started out with my primary care dr. who did some test and then sent me to a pain management dr. She gave 4 different sets of injections one on each side of my spine, did no good. Finally, I called a neuro surgeion and he said I had a pinched nerve at L5, which is the nerve that goes from your spine to your feet. He said I didn't have the normal symptons, like the shooting pains down my leg, only thing that hurt were my feet, my back didn't even hurt but he was 80 - 85% he could help me. So, I had surgery in Feb. 2011, then several months of therapy. He told me it could take 1 - 2 years for my pain in my feet to go away because it takes that long for the nerves in your spine to regenerate. Still in severe pain worse then before surgery. Thank goodness my back still doesn't hurt the only thing is my feet. Been on Lyrica since before the surgery, keep increasing my dosage, last I was taking 150mg in the morning and 300mg at night. I have a new pain management Dr. and he wants me to have that nerve stimulator put in my back. That really scares me, but I'm going to "test drive it" first and see how that goes. He's also decided that the Lyrica is not doing me any good so he's weaning me off of it, today is my first day of just taking 1 150MG pill for the whole day, I do that Sat. & Sun. and then on Monday I start takiing 60MG of Cymbalta once a day. I haven't slept in two weeks and I'm ready to scream. I called them today and told them so he's calling me in something to help me sleep, sorry can't remember what he said, but do know that it started with an "N". I'm really hoping and praying for a nights sleep tonight!!! Will let you know how it goes with the Cymbalta. Good luck!
