neurologist appt. booked and I feel just sick about it
« on: April 14, 2014, 05:32:04 PM »
I have had sore prickly nerve endings in both of my legs for 3 years straight accompanied by a surging feeling in my chest that feels kind of like adrenaline. The only time I feel a bit better is when I am in bed at night.  I had these sensations twice before this and they went away.  After a lot of testing and 3 neurologist visits no reason for my pain could be found.  The problem is they never tested for something called small fibre neuropathy, and now they will be doing this in 2 weeks.  Apparently I have to go for 3 to 4 hours of testing and I am really upset. Then I have to go back in 6 weeks for more testing.  How depressing is this.  I can't believe this is happening to me.

Any words of encouragement would be really welcome.

I hear ya...I was a wreck for my neurology appointment as well.  The good news is you have been cleared of the big stuff as it sounds to me.  Even if you have some neuropathy, that people can live with.

Thanks for replying Shawn. I am really afraid I will find out it is progressive.  Ahhh!
