Although I had a “normal” EMG and Nerve Conduction Study in August my foot pain and numbness has continued. Last month I noticed that my toes on both feet were starting to separate between the second and third toe -leaving a rather large space between them.
I went to the podiatrist today who ordered an ex-ray, but diagnosed me with “neuritis”. In all honesty, I’ve never been so confused leaving a doctor’s office before. The best I can figure is that it’s caused by inflammation of the sheath covering the nerve between the two toes.
Has anyone heard of this/dealt with this before? I have two brothers with autoimmune peripheral neuropathy disease, but this general term of “neuritis” is a new one on me! I guess it’s time to see another neurologist?
