Neuromuscular Specialist


Recommended Posts

I was hoping you might give me some guidance about an appt I have on Monday with a new neuromuscular specialist. I have gone this route before with no positive outcome but my new neurologist thinks it is still a valid avenue to pursue. My concern is that they will do the EMG and find nothing and then it is over. Do you know anything about small fiber neuropathy (ie. testing, etc)? I am hoping that they will be able to help explain the intermittent tremors in the very least and the weakness, tingling, burning sensation and pain in the best of all worlds. And could neuropathy affect the digestive tract? Any advice would be much appreciated. I am feeling so overwhelmed by the number of appts without any positive treatment outcomes. I want to be proactive in every appt but I feel a bit lost.

Hi Bren,

Could be a red herring- especially if you've gone this route before. I would respect your neurologist's wisdom and see this new doc, do his testing, etc. If everything's normal, that'll rule out some stuff. THEN, you can go back to the original neurologist and see what's next. It sounds like this may take some time and definately more than one appt. Stay strong. I hope you get answers. Yes, BTW, neuropathy can affect the GI tract. Symptoms are usually nausea, early satiety, vomiting, etc.

Let us know what you learn.
