|Vietnam Veteran, Denny Magnusen at VA LaJolla with no help for 3 hours|
To victims of Agent Orange and Peripheral Neuropathy There ARE things I can share with Vietnam Vets here, that I will add to as I can. There are tests that WILL VALIDATE YOUR PAIN, NUMBNESS, ELECTRICAL SHOCKS...
If you are testing mild to moderate for long nerve fiber neuropathy you might just have small nerve fiber neuropathy, which does not show up on tests done for long nerve. Small nerve fiber neuropathy is more painful, so if you were told you have nothing, or something mild to moderate? Or they are telling you that you're nuts or faking it? You are probably feeling major frustrated, so the good news? Ya ain't crazy!
INSIST they give you a 'small nerve fiber biopsy'!!!
