Hereditary neuropathy and foot specialist- worried about my diagnosis

crazylegs87 Member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi I am a new member. I was diagnosed with HNPP hireditory neuropathy with liability of pressure palsies 
3 years ago I had my first visit with a neurologist on Tuesday because my doctor doesn’t know anything about the condition. So I described my symptoms and she’s saying not all my symptoms as associated with HNPP so she’s taken blood tests, arranged for me to meet a specialist that knows about my condition she says a very long wait then a foot specialist to make insoles for my shoes & mri scan and then dropped the ms bomb. I’m obviously worried sick now and waiting to get an appointment for an mri has anyone else been through this?
