Nerve Damage?


Recommended Posts

I had an EMG and nerve conduction study done a few days ago, and the doctor told me that I have nerve damage in my right leg from my knee down, and my ankle area didn't show any response to the shocks. He is sending me for blood tests to check for about 11 different things (Lyme disease, diabetes, Lupus..and other autoimmune things) but I was wondering if anyone here has had this sort of problem? I'm guessing he doesn't think it's POTS related but I was just curious what you guys thought.

I was diagnosed with small fiber neuropathy as I have burning of the soles of my feet, palms of my hands, mouth and face much of the time. So my docs checked for all they could think of that would cause neuropathy, including the tests you mentioned above. Many illnesses can cause peripheral neuropathy, like you're describing. It sounds like you have good doctors!
