My Experience of HNPP: Ms P, UK

I was diagnosed with HNPP 6/7 years ago.

Since then over the years I have had quite a few symptoms I.E Pain (some neurologists do not associate HNPP with pain) ‘burning’, pins and needles, numbness, dizziness and exhaustion.

I have been on many different medications, had operations on both hand’s (carpal tunnel).

I am now in the middle of a 9 week pain management course learning that chronic pain can not be cured, so we are learning diversion techniques, meditation, gentle exercise.

Some people with HNPP get none or mild symptoms. I have also got fibromyalgia and some doctors think that there is a link to HNPP .
