Reply To: New here – possible CIPD?

Thanks for that info. I have no actual numbness. Only the paresthesia (tingling, burning…etc). I would consider my sensory symptoms to be severe (not minor). It feels like my hands/wrist and feet/ankles have frostbite or severe sunburn.

On what basis were you diagnosed with carpal tunnel? My EMG specifically found minor slowness across the carpal tunnel only. No hand weakness or any other nerve issues.

I am trying to figure out if this is possible atypical sensory CIPD or is it SFN (small fibre neuropathy). Any way to distinguish these two via specific tests?
