Hi I have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy 8 years after being told i had carpal tunnel syndrome! Now two years down the line symptoms are getting worse with tightness in throat nerve problems in face lack of sleep feeling drunk and spasms in my feet day and night. I have been back to the doctors who said I am waiting for referral back to neurologist, been waiting two months so far. I feel tired all the time and have tried several drugs that dont work or side affects are too bad to continue use.
I am getting more and more frustrated as i have no answers. I am starting to feel low with it now and am looking for advice from anyone who has gone through this. The symptoms I am experiencing are very similar to MS. I can no longer walk fast as my legs spasm go very tight and heavy and climbing stairs or slight hills is not easy. I realise that diagnosis of ms takes years and it could be something else but i seem to have no support from my doctors at all. I am presently taking thyroxine duloxetine naproxen and amytriptaline.
