Peripheral Neuropathy

Vancouver, WA
I forgot about this thread that I started.
I had mentioned that the Neurologist sent me for an MRI of the brain. The results showed a meningioma (benign tumor) that is pressing against my trigeminal nerve.
The neurologist and nerosurgeon who I saw don't think that my peripheral neuropathy can be attributed to the meningioma. It seems that it was an incidental finding, although I do need to take care of it since if it grows any more it could cause major damage.

I hope you are feeling much better. I'm also hoping we can get an update on how you're doing. Good luck!
