A doctor has provided 1 answer

Reassurance: 1. Neuropathies are caused from multiple mechanisms, such as diabetes, vitamin deficiency, etc., and can be reversed or controlled in numerous situations. 2. You may merely have sensory involvement (small fiber neuropathy), which might respond to targeted therapy and/or medical food such as MetanX. 3. See a neurologist, get this evaluated and start treatment as needed. Hope this helps.
