This neurologic condition has many possible causes and often affects patients with connective tissue diseases such as Sjogren's syndrome . Common symptoms include pain, burning, tingling and numbness. Symptoms usually start in the feet and can spread to the legs, hands and arms. In some cases the torso and face can be affected. Nerve conduction studies which diagnose large fiber peripheral neuropathies are often normal. The diagnosis of small fiber neuropathy is often made by a skin punch biopsy. This simple procedure can be done in Dr. Clinton's office. Treatment depends on the underlying cause.
