This is Dr. David
peripheral neuropathy doesn't tend to come and go
patients who have true damage to their nerves like diabetes causing peripheral neuropathy have it all the time.
I think you had the MRI scan of the wrong part of your body.
you had an MRI scan of your brain.
I think you need an MRI scan of your total spine.
sometimes pinched nerves in the spine or neck can cause neuropathy symptoms which come and go depending on how the spinal cord is pinched
ciprofloxicin can cause peripheral neuropathy in rare rare cases. and it has been reported.
are you still having these neuropathy symptoms? when did you stop the cipro?
I was on cipro 500 mg for 3 days then cut dose in half to 250 for 4th day. woke up with peripheral neuropathy in feet and hands. Dr told me to stop cipro.
I have had symptoms stop for several days then come back again. I can still walk fine and even run after my 6 yr old. I do have it now for last 24 hrs, but 2 days prior NO nerve tingling or neuropathy. Can I rule out Guillain Barre syndrome with an MRI?
your symptoms don't sound like guillain barre
MRI doesn't help rule out GB.
physical exam and spinal tap are the best ways to rule out GB.
are your symptoms getting slowly less frequent?
if getting less frequently could be a slow recovery from the cipro causing neuropathy.
symptoms are on and off again. I didn't have them 2 days ago, and then tingling and slight tremor inside body are back for last 24 hrs. Stress of not knowing taking a toll as well. I see a Neurologist next wednesday, but concerned if it should be sooner.
This began on Oct 10 and has been on and off.
seeing a neurologist this upcoming wednesday is fine.
keep a daily log of your symptoms and the days you have them or not.
this will help the neurologist help you figure out what might be going on.
