Hello,
The diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy must not have been made based on the MRI report that you have mentioned. The diagnosis must have been made on the basis of findings which doctor got on examining you. The test done for peripheral neuropathy commonly would be nerve conduction studies. Your symptoms do suggest peripheral neuropathy as the cause. Get back to your doctor and verify with him. Perpheral neuropathy is a broad diagnosis with hundreds of causes. Your MRI suggests something else which may or may not be related.
Good luck.
