Yes, my wife who has had neuropathy in her feet and ankles for 6 years gets random stabbing pains, very painful. If she were awake I'd ask her to refresh my memory about how she would describes them generally. I do know they are very painful, she sometimes describes them as going from one place to another (like feet up to chest for example) and they come without any warning. She is in agony for a minute and then it's gone. Sometimes she will get 2 or 3 in a row. So for her, yes, this is normal, i.e. part of neuropathy, in our opinion. Because I am not with her all the time and I can't ask her right now, I am not sure on average how often they occur. Probably once or twice a week, sometimes more, I suppose.
How long have you had peripheral neuropathy? Do you or your doctors have any idea what caused it? My wife's was from chemotherapy in 2014.
