Suggest treatment for peripheral neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy should be assessed.
Hi, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
In my opinion, peripheral neuropathy should be assessed as a possible cause of your symptoms, since head and neck MRI-s were negative.
Peripheral neuropathy causes include Diabetes, vitamins B group deficiency, certain drugs ( cytostatics), autoimmune diseases, viral infections, toxic substances ( heavy metals).
Nerve conduction study ( EMG and ENG) help in confirmation/exclusion diagnosis.
I suggest you to discuss with your Neurologist about above mentioned possibilities and tests needed to achieve a correct diagnosis of your condition.
Treatment depends on a correct diagnosis.
Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.
Chiari malformation should be treated.
Hi and thanks for asking back.
You mentioned in the first question that MRI were negative.
If your Doctor said you have Chiari malformation, this is diagnosed by MRI of head and spine.
If evidence of Chiari malformation on MRI and correlation of neurologic findings by examination, then Chiari malformation is causing your symptoms and should be treated by decompressive surgery.
I suggest you to have a neurosurgical opinion about this issue.
Neuropathy is damage of peripheral nerves by different conditions.
Pain killers only relieve symptoms and don't cure Chiari malformation.
Hope this helps. Wishing you good health.
