I have been diagnosed with both RLS and Peripheral Neuropathy. My neurologist did a emg which came back normal. Wonderful news but I still have RLS and Peripheral Neuropathy. He now wants me to have "punch biopsies" of the small nerve bundles. Has anyone had this done? My legs are getting worse and worse. My ankles swell to the point that they look like if I put a needle in them they will pop. Very painful and pins and needles in the feet all the time. Asked for a mild pain pill and because of all of the heroin abuse here in the USA, he cannot give me anything!! My primary care doctor must do that. I have not contact him yet but will. Any input of the biopsy process will be very appreciated. Thank you.
