Hello, the doctors never figured out if I have small fiber neuropathy or not, they assume, or could it be MS?

In brief: Can be diagnosed

Don't understand how diagnoses can be based on assumptions in 2015.
Small fiber neuropathy can be confirmed by abnormalities on skin punch biopsy, and MS is a specific diagnosis based on clinical, radiological, and laboratory testing. Get a second opinion from a neurologist at a nearby medical school.

In brief: See your PCP

The medical history, neurologic exam and lab tests help you PCP rule out other diseases and confirm the MS diagnosis.
The referral to a pain management specialist may be warranted.
