Could it be idiopathic
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 years ago.
This is Dr. David
idiopathic is only concluded after you have had all testing.
you need to see a neurologist and get nerve conduction studies
and an MRI scan of the brain and total spine to check for spinal stenosis and pinched nerves, possibly in the neck or cervical spine.
you could have a pinched nerve high up in the neck or something in the brain causing this peripheral neuropathy.
we can't conclude idiopathic yet.
do you have a doctor you can see who can do some testing for you or refer you to see a neurologist?
