I was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy in 2013, initially with idiopathic sensory peripheral neuropathy. My problems at that time were mainly pain in my feet and legs and loss of sensation there too. Since then my health generally has deteriorated and i have been struggling with poor mobility, dizziness, shortness of breath, excessive sweating at times, faintness, and chronic cough. I have had to take to using a mobility scooter, or a rollator (on better days). I would never have believed that one condition could cause all of this. However I have been reviewed by a neurologist in conjunction with a respiratory consultant, and also some cardiac tests. They have now confirmed that I have peripheral neuropathy which is affecting me in all these area i.e. more than the sensory nerves are affected. I really have no idea how this is going to progress and that is a bit frightening. I have always found that support from others with the same diagnosis is one of the best ways of coping. I would be very happy to support anyone else who chooses to contact me.
