Hi, Six months ago I had pins and needle tingling in my feet. I went to doctor when it started to affect my calves. After nerve tests etc I have been diagnosed with sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy. Well, after six months my feet are quite numb and legs up to knees too. No ankle reflex any more. Last month, my hands started tingling and are now going numb. I've noticed 'odd' feelings in my face over the last few days too.
I have had numerous blood tests and all are normal and my Neurologist says 'Sometimes we never find the cause'. Well I am very worried that it is progressing so fast.
Two questions really - Is it usual to progress at this speed? When and where will it stop? Other peoples experiences would be very informative. I feel so alone with this and the future is scaring me.
I've started taking vit B and alpha lipoic acid, just in case they may help.....
