I was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy for several years, with no treatment offered. Then I made an appointment with an MS specialist, and while he does not feel I have sufficient symptoms to diagnose Multiple Sclerosis yet, he does feel I have a type of transverse myelitis whereby my body's chronic inflammation has likely taken up residence in my spinal column causing my symptoms. Now i am trying therapies to re-educate my nerve pathways so I am not reacting to everything as emergency pain!
