Can I still have neuropathy even though my small nerve biopsys and qsart were negative - I get tingling in feet and left hand its not fun : (?

Tingling to me: By definition is neuropathy. Sometimes, tests can be false negatives.... Discuss with the doctor what their treatment would be if the test was positive...Sometimes, it may be a vitamin, i.Emetanx which would not hurt for you to take and then you can see if the symptoms persist or not....
