Sural nerve biopsy
Hi. I have severe peripheral neuropathy confirmed by nerve conduction studies. The results of the test confused my neurologist because it showed mixed axonal and demyelination get neuropathy. Originally I was diagnosed with a systemic metabolic disorder which caused metal transport problems which in turn caused a lot of other issues from bone marrow cancer to spinal cord lesions. I have the metabolic disorder treated and my blood levels are now mostly normal but I’ve been left with a permanent spinal cord injury, peripheral neuropathy and bone marrow failure. Just recently I’ve also been diagnosed with Sarcoidosis.
Anyway, after that long story…my Neuro is booking me for a Sural nerve biopsy to see if there’s any possibility for treatment and hopefully improvement in my neuropathy
Does this story sound familiar to anyone? I’m looking to talk to someone with a similar experience or has mixed peripheral neuropathy.
