I can understand your feelings about medications, I was at first hesitant. As for masking the symptoms it depends on which symptoms. The weakness and loss of ability to freely walk cannot be masked. The pain can be masked with Lyrica, cymbalta and possibly a narcotic.

The diagnosis can be the hard part. A neurologist will use an EMG/NCS to look for neuropathy but it will not show up in the early stages of SFN. They may also look for loss of reflexes in the knees and ankles. A last resort is a sural nerve biopsy but they do not like to do that much anymore as you lose sensation in part of your foot.
