Small Fiber Neuropathy and Epstein-Barr Virus
I was diagnosed with small fiber neuropathy in 2020 through skin biopsy after 8 years of a whirlwind of symptoms. I won’t bore you with that list or the tests I have done to determine, for now unsuccessfully, what is causing my small fiber neuropathy (I will be happy to, if someone wants to compare symptoms and tests performed, although I am well aware, everyone’s experience is different). I had mono when I was 19 and I also have herpes viruses that are active although I haven’t been tested. I am having a hard time getting both my neurologist and my PCP to listen to me and investigate further. Does anyone else have small fiber neuropathy because of mono or other herpes viruses? If so, how did you go about getting diagnosed? I am not saying this is the cause but I would like to determine if it is or if it is not. Thank you.
