Hi all, my dad has Polyarteritis Nodosa and Mononeurtitis Multiplex. He was diagnosed in November 2015 at the same time as being diagnosed with Hep B, following months of generally feeling unwell and then loss of feeling in his feet, followed by his hands. One specialist has said that he will recover fully in 2 years and others have said he'll never recover. He has adapted really well so far but as yet seen no real improvement. I was just wondering if anyone had any hints or tips or idea as to where we can get some more information/help. He can walk very short distances with calipers but they cause him a lot of pain. Apart from all the drugs and medical bits, he has tried reflexology, acupuncture, massage and has sporadic physio. My parents are currently just feeling very depressed about it all and feel as if no one really cares (obviously NHS being understaffed and underfunded) or has the time to spend any time helping them trying to find something that may help him see a tiny bit of improvement. Anything that you can suggest would be really helpful. Thank you!
