I have peripheral neuropathy since Dx of UC. saw neurologist and pain doc. Did nerve conduction tests and a couple small fiber nerve biopsies. That came back positive which started another path with a bunch of blood tests to rule out causes... All did except one pointed to a IGG abnormality. Additional blood, saw one hematologist / oncologist. More blood, urine, repeat visit. dislike his explanation of possible cancer risk unrelated to UC. went elsewhere & saw chief of oncology dept, he spent an hour doing blood, looking under microscope, reviewing/ expanding results, and concluding I'm MGUS. Need 3 month follow-ups.
It it related, he said no too. Seems odd that it came about
with the UC.
My GI also says it's not. My PCP says it might be.
I think the jury is out and it may be related.
Anyway, see a neuro for PN & get small fiber biopsies done if you don't have obvious causes.
