Small Fiber Neuropathy

Posted by Tina on 3/26/05 at 07:20 (171978)

I have been diagnosed at the Mayo Clinic with a small fiber neuropathy. Now I have discovered a procedure that is supposed to alleviate neuropathy pain, a combination of implants and tarsal tunnel surgery. My question is: does tarsal tunnel surgery necessarily alleviate SMALL fiber neuropathy?

Is not small fiber neuropathy related to diabetes?

Not that I've been told. I was told the large fiber neuropathy was related to diabetes.

My mother was diagnosed with small fiber neuropathy 2 years ago and it is amazing how little the doctors know about it. I was just wondering if your procedure worked or if you have found anything that works. Please email me at gooserockett at aol.com
