He's looking for a pinched nerve just as a possible cause but he said "just as I thought" that a pinched nerve would not cause all over neuropathy. He also did some blood work to look for possible causes. My neurologist is thinking it could be MS since I have had past attacks. With a positive ANA, he thinks it could more likely be due to Lupus, but he's still doing an MRI on my brain. He has also suggested doing a spinal tap, which I might end up having done, because my insurance has yet to approve the MRI. This attack is the worst yet and it will not go away. I want to know why I have the neuropathy, so whatever tests they want to do, I guess is okay with me. Should I stop certain medications before I have the test done? I read online that you should stop anything that affects your nervous system 3-6 days before the test. I'm not sure which one's that would be except neurontin. How about
my muscle relaxant or plaquenil? The plaquenil stops the weekness the neuropathy is causing.
