PN Specialist/Centers near Kansas?
Hello – Does anyone know of any PN specialists that they recommended near Kansas? Doubtful, but thought I would ask. I believe I have SFPN but have not been officially diagnosed. My PCP sent me to a neuro for an EMG but nothing came back other than carpel tunnel. He basically sent me away and told me it was all in my head. From what it appears, I have full body neuropathy. Numb & burning hands and feet, tingling, feeling like I have something crawling on my skin, soreness/pain in hands and feet, limbs fall asleep quickly, stabbing feeling all over including my scalp, eyelids & face, lightheaded when I stand up quickly, dry skin, dry mouth, occasional perceived weakness, etc. It came on very suddenly over a course of weeks. The only thing I can think caused it was a round of Cipro antibiotics or drinking excessive wine in my 20's – I am 36 now. I was tested for diabetes (came back normal), vitamin B & D, MS, Sjogren's syndrome, thyroid, and so on. I was not tested for heavy metals. I just want to cover all bases when it comes to determining the causes before I call it idiopathic, and would like a definitive diagnoses from someone who specializes in neuropathy. It is not all in my head.
