I have recently been diagnosed with this by 3 punch biopsies. I noticed both big toeswere numb and had some burning in the some of my left foot since before Christmas! We have few good doctors here and I often feel I am managing my own health care. After weeks, finally saw a Neurologist here who did nerve testing then referred me to Stanford, waited weeks for that appt. they wanted their own tests so another couple of weeks before that was done. Then wanted these skin biopsies done, add another couple of weeks for tests and 2 more weeks for results, thus the SFN diagnosis. During this time, my left foot has gotten worse and now my right foot is getting bad. Have had pain in my left foot nobody can diagnose. Fir months, the palms of both my hands look like they have been in water for an hour. Have shown at least 4 doctors who say nothing. I am getting cramping feelings in my left foot and toes. My left hand cramps. Neurologist said that is not a symptom but I showed him where I have read it can be! Stanford is 1 1/2 - 3 hours from me, depending on traffic. Husband is getting tired of going there. I also see a GI doctor there. Neuro suggested I go to their pain clinic, we have none here. I don't feel they have tried to find a cause! He put me on B-12 but no improvement. I have been on Gabapentin fir at least 2 years for GI issues. I have other medical problems too and now this! Was wondering if anyone has this and would appreciate some info. Thanks.
