> Ben,

good luck finding the source of your pain. i know it's very real for you.

i've had similar symptoms recently. i am hypothyroid, which could be a contributing factor. but most of the symptoms, after testing, were proven to be psychological in origin.

So, just to make you feel better, let me say that I dug out a book on pyschology and illness. Neuropathy is likely to cause symptoms along the length of your whole arm -- like a stripe -- plus the fingers that correspond to that stripe. If you are having "glove" symptoms -- in other words, symtpoms in most of your fingers, then the cause is likely NOT neuropathy.

This is not to say that your symptoms are not real. Tense muscles, antidepressant withdrawal, and hormone problems can do a lot to create the APPEARANCE of neuropathy. But if your tests are coming back okay, you can breathe easy knowing that you're fine.

Good luck.
