Confused: test didn't detect neuropathy, but many symptoms
Judging from the other posts I am not alone and extremely disappointed with the current health care i am receiving. I was given a chemo pill and got some form of neuropathy. I was a daily drinker at the time as well had a fair amount of anxiety and on and off hypothyroidism. Fell into a depressed state for many years. Was given opioids for the last 12 years to treat what I would call severe pain in my feet legs and hands and life was bearable. I fall down constantly. My doctor took a position in a hospital so I was referred to a pain clinic Now they wont give me the opioids to me because a nerve test couldn’t detect neuropathy. The current doctor had me convinced I didn’t need them so I started taking less. I can barely walk. The burning has moved to my chest. I haven’t slept in days. It feels like I’m standing barefoot on ice. My legs feel like I ran a marathon the day before and the cramping after a short walk is unbearable. I cant believe they expect me to live like this. I at a total loss. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
