When I read this, I cannot stop myself from commenting. Why in the world do Doctors think they can measure and study our pain, but dismiss us without any discussion or direction?? It is quite deceiving to go to a "neurologist" thinking they know about NERVE pain. We actually have to find out ahead of time if they "specialize" in PN….and hope for the truth. THEN, we HOPE (if they know and care) that we will walk away with some kind of instructions as to relieving or coping with this nasty disease. Ok, I know there is no "cure" for PN, but so many Doctors are seemingly proud of doing a bunch of tests and sending you on your way. At least go find out, get back to me, be helpful in pain reduction. (I know I am repeating myself). Maybe I am just upset that I have not found a qualified Doctor and have done "trial and error" on my own. So thankful for this site!
Oh yes, specialists! Thank God for internet search! Without it, so many people would suffer in even more pain and despair and possibly loneliness.
My neurologist even told me to google about sfn!
And my aunt spend sooooo much money on neurologist and rheumatologist, they told her lupus, or maybe rheumatoid arthritis. She internet searched and diagnosed herself with scleroderma, which then doctors confirmed! 🙄
