Default New with Mouth and arm issues

Hi folks, not diagnosed yet but I did manage to see the words "peripheral neuropathy" at the bottom of my neurologists notes, so here I am.
I have had pain and pins and needles in my arms and hands for at least 7 years but have always put it down to trapped nerves due to my work.
Over the last year and a half u have felt a gradual loss of feeling in my mouth, tongue and soft palate so went to see my doctor. I guess now it's about them working out why I have it. I can rule out diabetes as I have not eaten sugar (even dried fruit or honey), For two and a half year. I also drink little alcohol so can rule that out too. I am very worried how far this thing can go, I have had to stop working due to my symptoms in December and can feel it starting in my legs and feet too. Also, for the last six months I have noticed my hands losing their bulk and my bones and tendons are starting to show which freaks me out a little.
I am looking forward to reading others experiences of this very unpleasant problem.

There is a large group here in the Peripheral Neuropathy area and I just posted on blood pressure medications and nerve damage. Any meds in your life? Surgeries? I never had issues until nerve damage from Hip replacement in 2010.
OA onset at 18, now 79. Fibro onset at 61, Hip Replacement "mess" 72 (nerve damage, IT band damage, shorter leg). Otherwise, pretty good health.

Most important supplement: grape seed extract

My Mood: New with Mouth and arm issues

Hi Heldo

Welcome to NeuroTalk; I hope that you will find the community as knowledgeable and supportive as I have .

There are many possible causes of peripheral neuropathy and unknown (idiopathic) causes are common.

If you share your story in the PN forum (https://www.neurotalk.org/forum20/) I am sure that you will get helpful responses from other members.

Best wishes.
Knowledge is power.
