I've had small fiber neuropathy and/or fms for 15 years with no relief. Is pulse stimulation treatment (pstim) a viable treatment? It's costly..

Change food first: Most of the nerves that transmit pain are small fibers between the layers of your fascia. Fascia makes inflammatory chemicals in response to exposure to wheat and sugar. These may cause injury to the small fiber nerves. Stop your exposure to the 'do not eat' list and your body will work to heal itself with the energy and reserve you have left.

Sorry to hear that you have been feeling poorly. I think this is a topic better discussed in depth with your primary physician. "Pseudo narrowing" is a little bit of an ambiguous term and requires some clarification from your doctor as to what exactly they mean when they say pseudo-narrowing. Further testing may be needed to determine if you have an actual stricture. Hope this helps. ...Read more
