My husband has been suffering neuropathy for one year. His tests (x-rays, m.r.i's, cat scans, blood work, spinal taps, etc.) all came back negative so his next step was a muscle and nerve biopsy. The only advice I can give is to avoid this at all cause. Since my husband's biopsies, the neuropathy has seemed to somewhat clear up, but only to be replaced with extreme pain where the nerve biopsy was done. While trying to regrow, the nerve is causing more pain than the neuropathy ever could have caused. And one would ask what we found out from the nerve or the muscle biopsies.....NOTHING!!! We only found out that there was some regeneration of the nerves, but the actual cause of the nerve damage is still unclear. Now the doctor's want to put him in and severe the nerve again so the pain will subside. I just have to ask myself, where does it end, everytime the nerve tries to repair itself do we go in and cut it again? It is actually insane. Please feel free to contact us, as we would be more than happy to help anyone we can.

I fell last year and ruptured quads (tendons and thigh muscles) on both knees. In full lenght cast 2 months. Found out I have peripheral neuropathy from head to toe. Have been thru much blood work and many tests ANA keeps coming back positive. Everything else negative. Cannot seem to find underlying cause. Has anyone had nerve biopsy done on leg? That is next step
