New neuropathy consult

@jordanabrams30 and @lois6524 — my appointment/consultation was with a Mayo Clinic Rochester neurologist and to me was like most other doctors appointments. I had to have several tests before my consult – EMG, MRI and a blood test if I remember correctly. The neurologist talked with me about my symptoms which were mostly numbness in both of my feet and legs. He examined my feet and legs and asked me if he could take a picture of my hammer toes which he said were typical of small fiber peripheral neuropathy patients and he wanted to use them for a paper or session he was putting together. He also had me do a couple of walking tests that I expect were to show balance or gait problems. I'm sure each consult is different due to patient symptoms that might call for different checks/exams/tests. He was pretty thorough but I still left a little depressed because there were no treatments for numbness.

Hey, but now we have Mayo Clinic Connect and we have other members with similar symptoms to share, compare and learn what helps. I'm hoping you give us an update after your consultation.

@johnbishop thanks for the information. I am curious with how knowledgeable you are on the subject of SFN, have you heard any information or success on the Facebook group solutions to peripheral neuropathy or solutions2pnpd.com? Thanks
