No : this is a better question ask a neurologist. In general a nodule does not cause Demyelination. When you bring a neutropenia and high iron, then we're looking at a possible mixture of different medical diagnoses. Ask your physician for you to see neurologist that specifies into these areas.

Yes it can : depending on what the spinal nerve nodule is. A skin disease can cause the nerve nodules just as nerve nodules can cause skin changes
