Sweat Gland Biopsy Positive for Small Fiber Neuropathy!

Postby Scboy on March 2nd, 2015, 4:29 pm

I am still waiting for the doctor to contact me, but I already have the lab results. Don't know what to expect. Anybody with knowledge or experience please let give me some info. Is this something that can be managed?

Clinically I get heart palpitations a few times a day, bloat easily, and of course twitch a lot body wide. My lips and tongue burn at random times. My skin on my hands and feet feel dry. I feel hot. Ears ring a lot.
Just a bunch of weird symptoms. Hard to exactly put in words. Hopefully the dr is on the right track. I just pray there is a good treatment and prognosis.

scboy,
your symptomes sound like related to autonomoous nervous system disfunction ( becasue autonomous system takes care about heart rythm, sweating, GIT peristaltics and generally digestion, blood circulation (tintinnus you experience might be caused by blood flow) etc.) Had you and your doctors explore this possiblity? Many of fellows here show symptoms of chronic autonomous system disfunction (mosttly caused by chronic stress).

Thanks Yulia,
Yes the doctor thinks I have autonomic neuropathy and the test supports it. The question is what is causing it and what to do about it. Still waiting to hear from him. If you have any ideas let me know. Thanks.
