Response from Dr. McGovern

I am sorry to hear that your neuropathy is so severe. You have tried all the treatments that I would consider.

I would pursue all causes of neuropathy to see if there is anything else you can address besides hepatitis C. Which blood tests are drawn will depend on the results of your prior nerve conduction studies. You should discuss this with your neurologist.
