Regarding the skin biopsy, for me they did the left leg in 3 spots, ankle thigh and hip. Even though you may have pain in various parts of you body, they don't take a sample in each spot. My Neurologist said that if you have pain there, then you have the neuropathy there. It's a complicated illness that I find a lot of people don't understand. I'm not sure I totally do.

I had a strange thing happen yesterday. I went for a short walk with my dog last evening and half way through the walk my legs became extremely itchy. It was unbearable. It may have been the cold, but it really wasn't too bad out last night. It sent me to tears, because it seems that there is no peace with this process. It unpredictable. Has anyone else expierienced this? Sometimes I think I may have other stuff going on. Like does any one have Tinnitus? Or Insomnia? I think I'm just losing it. My Neurologist kept just wanting to refer me to other specialists, he would never answer whether any of this was connected to Small Fiber Neuropathy, and there seems to be limited information out there. My Neurologist said, "see you in a year" they will re test for the underlying conditions once again. Needless to say, I will not be seeing him again. I found the doctors to be cold and uncaring. It's like an assembly line.....Dx. give them meds...send them out the door.

Guess I'm just frustrated with this whole damn thing.

Guess I'm just frustrated with this whole damn thing.[/QUOTE] Yeah, the "see you in a year" thing is non-sense. I would get any test that doctor did on you and go see another Neurologist that is set on helping his/her patients. My legs do itch sometimes. I've never had anyone tell me it's related to the SFN though. I'll ask my nuro when I see him this week and get back to you. It could also be from the meds I'm taking. I've read the Vicodin can make a person itch. Good luck Dianne. Please keep working hard to get the care you deserve
