All your tests?: Peripheral nerve problems could well be a cause of your symptoms, and your listed studies would, in no way answer questions of a small fibre neuropathy. Am baffled why you had an ssep study, which is rarely used outside of spinal surgeries. Consider a second opinion, and obtaining a series of skin punch biopsies to evaluate small fibre process.
