I am seeing a new doc who thinks I should get nerve studies for my neuropathy. I take gabapentin and tramadol which are very helpful, esp. at night when trying to sleep. I am also suffering from joint pain at my knees, wrists and elbows (when I wake up and extend them, very painful). So, if I get the nerve studies what is the point and how else can a MD help after this test? My understanding is glucose control,meds and supplements are the treatments. Hate to go through the studies if nothing else can be done. Thanks for any feedback!
