Default How does acute full body Sensory PN happen?

I am curious if anyone out there, that has spent many hours researching or has talked in depth with specialist, knows the answer to this question. How does acute full body Sensory PN happen? In my case it happened over night.

My understanding is that it involves the Dorsal Root Ganglia. There are 31 DRG in our body, one for every nerve that comes out of the spine. If you have full body neuropathy and parethesia, does this mean all 31 DRG were affected at the same time? And how can it happen so quickly like in a matter of days? Does that mean our white blood cells attacked every DRG in our body?

I am just trying to make sense what has happened to me. One day I am normal and 2 days later its has taken over my entire body. Can our bodies figure out that its attacking the wrong cells? Something turned it on, so I would think it could be turned off? Any feedback is appreciated.

Hello...

I have never heard of your condition. My only suggestion I can make is seek out a rhuematologist. It sounds like it can be a autoimmune disorder. I hope you find the answers and begin to feel better!

Best wishes,

Default An attack on the dorsal root ganglia--

--that results in an acute full-body sensory neuropathy would be more correctly referred to clinically as a neuronopathy, in that the cell bodies (the soma) rather than the axon (the conducting wire), is the site of the attack.

There are a number of entities that this can result from, many of them autoimune.

Take a look at:
