I have a question. I have Small Fiber Neuropathy in my left foot spreading up left leg. The burning pain is horrible but i recently started physical therapy for kneecap slipping and spur. My pain has increased severly! I cant sleep. Does PT make SNF worse? My friend is a PT Professor and helped me with nerves flossing. Will I improve with time?

Hello @trishh, Welcome to Connect. If the kneecap slipping is causing a pinched nerve it can make the pain worse. Here's some information on pinched nerve in the knee – https://www.healthline.com/health/what-causes-a-pinched-nerve-in-the-knee-and-how-to-treat-it. Is your small fiber neuropathy only in you left foot and leg? Do you mind sharing what tests were done to diagnose you with small fiber neuropathy?
