Past Tests-

I have been to the neurologist twice. Once in 2008 and in 2012. They did a complete physical exam twice and conducted the tests above in 2008. The doctors state that I do not have any nerve disease or peripheral nerve damage and may just have to live feeling 70 to 80 percent of normal. Any suggestions on what I should or could do? Thank you in advance for your help.
