Hi, rarely post anymore but do keep up with what's being put up by other members.
After 1-1/2 years (just a short while, I realize) after being more or less struck by fairly global, burning NLD small fiber neuropathy it has finally disappeared from probably 85% of the affected areas. Remaining slightly sensitive spots are still the face (cheeks) and inner thigh. I still credit MrsD's supplements advice with this improvement and a marvelous foaming Rx emollient, HylaTopic plus, that saved my face.
However for the past four weeks have had low-grade stomach upset/pain with sour/bitter taste in the mouth on and off. Poor appetite and fill up after only a few bites or small glass of liquid. For the past few days, the sour/bitter seems is a lot better but the filling up fast is still there. Been using my old stand-by Cola syrup and milk.
Recent abdominal ultasound was negative. Routine biopsy was done after the endoduodenoscopy (normal) for H. pylori and probably other stuff as well. Having a CT abdomen w/contrast tomorrow.
After thinking about the vagus nerve, however, did some research into whether or not it was a neuropathy of the vagus nerve which can cause gastroparesis. Gallbladder was removed laparascopically and wonder about any damage that might caused to the vagus. Anybody have any ideas?
