I've had small fibre peripheral neuropathy since last November. Since then, it has spread rapidly, and now affects about 75% of my body. I've done every test imaginable, and the cause is still unknown. I'm an otherwise healthy and fit 28-year-old woman.
From the beginning, it has always flared up mainly after meals - and the bigger the meal or the more sugar/carbs it has, the worse the reaction. It always starts about 10 to 15 minutes after eating, and then keeps peaking until it eventually subsides after 1.5 to 2 hours. This coincides perfectly with rises in blood glucose. I have done detailed blood glucose and insulin tests, and am not even anywhere near prediabetic.
What I'm struggling to figure out, is whether the blood sugar spikes are actually causing the damage (even if they're within 'normal' limits), or whether the damage is from something else, and the damaged nerve ending are simply sensitive to increases in blood sugar.
Does anyone else experience this?
