Sudden onset neuropathy and scared

Hello @formerfisherman, Welcome to Connect. It can be scary to read about all the scenarios and symptoms that can go along with neuropathy. My neuropathy was not a sudden onset but I had the same worries after I was diagnosed 20+ years after my first symptoms showed up. I think the best thing you can do is make a list of your symptoms and the questions that are running through your mind and take them with you when you see your doctor. You might want to take a look at this website that has some tools and tips you can use to talk to your doctor Friday — https://patientrevolution.org/visit-tools. The advantage of being prepared for your appointment will be helpful for you and the doctor. Hopefully you can get all your questions answered.

There are also two good sites I use that have reliable information on neuropathy that might be useful before and after your appointment.
— Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy: https://www.foundationforpn.org/
— Neuropathy Commons: https://neuropathycommons.org/neuropathy/neuropathy-overview

Can you let me know how your appointment goes Friday?
