I think a lot of us diagnosed with fibro and having these sx as burning, tingling, vibrating, buzzing, stabbing, shootin, tearing....
might have small fiber neuropathy.
Dont let your neuro dismiss this or say ya you probably do. there is a very simple and extremly rliable test for this.
ITs Skin biopsy. They are suppose to do three different spots on one leg.
I had it done but for some odd reason my doc only did one spot. (my one spot was normal...meaning no nerve loss or sweat gland loss) so i was not diagnosed with it but even the lab called me and asked why in the world doc did one spot. Cause they need to see other two sopts going up the leg and thigh.
The point is. this is a new test for verifying small fiberr neuropathy and its quite accurate. You can check the website for the lab that runs this test. www.therapath.com
they have tons of info.
Its very very very simple procedure. they only take upto skin. its not like a muscle biposy. its a punch biopsy. you can even view it on youtube.
I know a lot of people who finally got confirmation thru this test. I have been going to docs for 13 years and I was stunned why my neuro never mentioned this. I had to beg him. I know my one spot wasw negative but still.
If it turns up positive then you can look for causes. But atleast gives you something tangible.
I dont have insurance right now so I am not asking my doc to do the other two spots.
well thats my two cents!!.
i know we are all having these odd symptoms...with our nerves and muscles.
