Welcome to ThisIsMS, Sean.
I will take you up on your statement that any comments will be appreciated – here are mine (perhaps unique to me). Compare the examinations from your doctor and neurologist to the neuro exam suggested by the University of Chicago:http://peripheralneuropathycenter.uchic ... #bloodtest
I think this section on blood tests is especially important:
Blood tests are commonly employed to check for vitamin deficiencies, toxic elements and evidence of an abnormal immune response.
Depending on your individual situation, your doctor may request certain laboratory tests to identify potentially treatable causes for neuropathy. These include tests for:
Vitamin B12 and folate levels (Jimmylegs, here at TIMS, recommends magnesium, zinc, and copper also.)
Thyroid, liver and kidney functions (You have checked thyroid hormones testing, which is recommended by Kathryn Simpkins in her book, The MS Solution)
Oral glucose tolerance test (I suggest a "fasting blood insulin
Antibodies to nerve components (e.g., anti-MAG antibody)
Antibodies related to celiac disease (Recent research highlights this, as well as a mannitol-lactulose test for Intestinal Permeability.)
Hepatitis C and B
We are glad you found us; we are willing to share our opinions, when asked.
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"
