Hello there Baggett,

First of all I am so sorry that you have been suspected that you are suffering from autoimmune neuropathy. I am aware of the fact that some additional testing needs to be conducted before your doctor gets the right diagnosis but it is highly unlikely that he is completely wrong.

Since brammer has already explained you causes, symptoms and classification of this condition there is no reason to repeat his words. I would just like to add that I hope that you will find a way to manage with this condition and that you have support of your family and your friends. Keep us posted about further events and good luck with everything.
