|RE: PN pain & numbness
Dec 31, 2002
Dear Dr Boyle,
You mention fairly constant numbness or 'pain' as a major indication of PN. What actually constitutes 'pain'?
I have a regular vibration/tremor (non visible) type sensation in both feet (randomly ditributed soles/heel/toe & sometimes in calf/leg) ongoing >3 weeks but no numbness/weakness. Sensations much more apparent when sitting, but are not 'painful' (dont hurt) as such. Does this sound like PN, or something else?
Response from Dr. Boyle
What you're describing could be PN, but it is tough to say without further information and an exam. Bring this up with your doctor on your next visit and see what he/she thinks.
