Recently Diagnosed with Small Fiber Neuropathy
I am new to this site as I was just diagnosed with Small Fiber Neuropathy after MRIs, EMG and a physical exam by my Neurologist. The EMG and blood tests were normal as well as the MRI of my spine and lumbar area. I am a 75 year old male and have symptoms for about 5 weeks- extremely cold feet and legs, numbing and changing to hot at times. No pain or tingling. I was prescribed gabapentin and currently on 600 mg once per day with no symptom relief for about two weeks. He will add an additional 300 mg. Lying down worsens the symptoms and that only allows me to sleep for a few hours each night. Had both Moderna shots completed at the end of February.Ny Neurologist says the cause can't be determined so only treatment. I am requesting any ideas that you may have regarding what treatment options are available and ways to deal with my symptoms. Do non prescription or physical therapy work? Or anything else? My symptoms seem unique.
