Biopsy done. Totally painless. I’ve been told the results can take up to three months. That’s a bit disappointing but all I can do is to be patient.

Good for you @lillian32. You get the advocacy badge. You sought a diagnosis, researched the skin test procedure for small fiber neuropathy ( SFN),and requested it from your neurologist.

And now you wait. That situation makes you anxiety prone as your mind projects the different outcomes while you continue to wait. And that is an awfully long time. I hope your neurologist explained that there are only a few labs that are performing this analysis. So what did he/she recommend that you do for your pain and discomfort while waiting?

Do you practice meditation and mindfulness? That can be helpful. And of course we are here to support you. @jenniferhunter has a discussion about Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR). My experience has found that to be life changing for dealing with SFN. Please post again as you progress through the wait. Be safe and secure today. Chris
