Video: What small fiber neuropothy skin biopsies can tell you about Fibromyalgia

Some patients who have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia may also experience the symptoms of burning, tingling, numbness or stabbing sensations in varying regions of their body. These neuropathic symptoms are not typical and consistent with the diagnostic criteria of Fibromyalgia. Recent data and multiple peer reviewed papers have proven that over 50% of patients with the diagnoses of Fibromyalgia may have damage to their small sensory nerves in the skin producing extreme symptoms of pain. This diagnoses can be made via a small skin biopsy and the analysis of those sensory nerves.
