I had blood work done last week and met with a neurologist yesterday. Blood work showed no diabetes, but he put me on iron and B12 supplements.
He did a nerve conduction study and an Electromyography on both feet, lower legs and behind both knees, and my left hand. Results: Severe nerve damage everywhere he tested.
Cannot be fixed.
Iron and B12 supplements will help it from getting worse. He believes it originated in my lower back and is reviewing the MRI on my back from this summer and I see him again on December 5th. That’s all we know so far.
Nothing ever showed up on mri or ct scan. My symptoms were not nerve damage related. Could have started years ago. Could be my scoliosis. Can be controlled and hopefully help pain, but not fixed.
I’m ok. At least I know what I’m dealing with. I have confidence in this doctor.
