4 for 4

My left foot drop preceded my C5-C6-C7 fusion by almost 26 years.

The fusion symptoms and the other symptoms occurred concurrently. The fusion relieved the majority of it’s specific symptoms. Unfortunately, the weakness and, ultimately, the CIDP related symptoms progressed over the following 10 years.

My worst, thank goodness, nerve pain(s) were only in my right hand and were incorrectly diagnosed as carpal tunnel and then anterior interosseous syndrome.

Oh, well, I’ve tried every medicine mentioned here, and then some. Couldn’t begin to speculate what ‘fixed’ my nerve pain. I look back over the years and realized it quit hurting.

Good luck to you.
