Unfortunately, diagnosing neuropathy is sometimes very difficult. The neurologist is correct in saying that he may have to wait for more clues to present. It is best to try to be patient and keep an open mind about the cause. Give the neurologist time to do the diagnosis. I would not presume to advise a doctor what type of MRI or any other test is needed. That is their domain.

Naturopathy is quackery. This will not help your son. Acupuncture is placebo. You must allow neurologists to do their work without these distractions. It may be that consultation with other neurologists will be needed if progress is not being made.
