Skin biopsy may show negative result while having SFN.
Sweet test can show positive result.
A simple test done in the past by neuro with a tuning fork is showing i have more sensation at the level of the knee than at the foot level.
He said probably sfn. As well as long fiber neuropathy because of twitches. Not progressing.
Probably autoimmune.

It is 6 years + i have this.
We have to live with this even if it is not fun ... there is no solution.
Just hope there is no flare up with more symptoms that will appears in the future.

I got dry eye 3 yers ago. Prety sure it is because of that.

Good luck.
Idiopathic SFN (head to toes) ... auto-immune related

Its interesting.

I only take 3 supplements and have done so for the duration of my BFS recovery:

* Alpha Lipoic Acid
* R Lipoic Acid
* CoQ 10

And two of the three are mentioned above as being therapeutic for BFS by others. Nice to hear.

How I resolved my BFS within 1 year of onset:
