Default It's just sort of a catch-all term--

--for a deterioration of the nerve fibers themselves in sensory nerves, as opposed to deterioration of the myelin sheathing.

Of course, not all nerves have myelin coverings--the small fibers that subsume the sensations of pain and temperature do not, so damage to them is by definition axonal. There are also small, unmyelinated fibers that control many autonomic functions (such as blood pressure and sweating).

One can also have deterioration of the sensory trunks in larger, myelinated nerves--these tend to be on the periphery in these nerves (the motor nerve trunks are more in the "center of the cable").

Just labelling the condition "sensory axonal neuropathy" does not indicate which fibers are involved or what caused the situation, though.

Default This reference is all in 'tech talk' but gets to the ...

root of the issues: http://neuromuscular.wustl.edu/antibody/sneuron.html

You should read this first to get a handle on how you might get from start to finish, take a look at the graph of possibilities: http://www.aafp.org/afp/980215ap/poncelet.html There is a lot more up in the 'stickies' at the top of the forum....just click on the 'blue' and go from there.

This link shows the 4 types of nerve axons/fibers that go back to the spinal cord and brain carrying sensory information:

http://faculty.washington.edu/chudler/cv.html

The long tail on the illustrated neuron, that is animated is the axon. Of the 4 types of sensory fibers, 3 are myelinated, which are insulated with a type of fat. (shows in yellow).
The C fibers are the slowest and do not have this protection.

Your diagnosis is that you have a sensory problem with damage to or poor functioning of the axons, which relay information to the spinal cord.

This is descriptive only, and does not explain what or how this is happening. So as a diagnosis it tells very little.

possibilities:
toxin
drug
vaccine
autoimmune attacks
infectious (viral or bacterial)
DNA damage or genetic failure to repair (CMT)
mitochondrial damage
diabetes
cancer (paraneoplasia)
Allergic (gluten intolerance, histamine)

So as a diagnosis this only describes the loss of function but
not what is causing it.

Also, check out the link I gave you. Ask your doctor/neurologist to explain it to you. Any family history of the symptoms you might be experiencing.? Please share what you are experiencing. Thank you.
