Customer Question

I had a nreve test done I both of my legs because I was experiencing paralysis for short periods of time. The test showed that I have lost my nerves on my right leg from my toes to my knee. What is this a symptom caused by? I do have fused spinal cords on my lower back and upper back. I , also suffer from migraines and fainting spells but I have had these all of my life. I am fifty years old and have a lot of pain through out my whole body.
Thank you so much!

Was this a peripheral neuropathy?

Or was there a specific nerve mentioned, like peroneal neuropathy?

What exactly was weak in the legs? The whole leg, or just a specific muscle?
