do any of you have periphreal nueropothy(sp)

hello,
Ihave been having a bunch of different symptoms and went to the nuerologist,I was first diag with MS.... well long story short had a bad experience with that Dr he put me on some MS meds andI had some bad reactions(heartpalpatations) He tolds me to continue taking the meds.
well needless to say I quit taking meds and found another Dr. This dr doesnt think that it is MS he believes it is Peripheral Neropothy(sp) any insight to this condition symptoms ,meds would be greatly appreciated

  • I was wondering if you found out any info. on this disease?? I have been having so many crazy symptoms and they to have checked me fo m.s., which as of right now is a negative. They are now thinking maybe lupus?! I don't seem to have any symptoms of lupus! My symptoms point more towards periperal neuropathy but I don't know?! What kinds of symptoms have you been experiencing?

  • my grandmother has neuropathy and everything that you said she had that was her 1st sign...although it took doctors a while to finally say that she did have it...as far as treatment nothing really works for her pain and numbness...im sorry i hope you have something else the doc told my grandma he doesnt see a cure for this for atleast another 10-15 years
