I have peripheral neuropathy pain - especially in my hands. MS has been ruled out. What else could be causing this?

I get pins and needles in fingers. My fingers feel like they're on fire! I get muscle spasms and twitches. My face goes numb.

My doctors have ruled out MS after a brain scan. What else could be causing this pain?

Are there any other conditions that can cause peripheral neuropathy?

    The most common source is diabetic neuropathy.

    However, you would probably already that to be the cause if you were diabetic.

    Edit: Another possibility is Raynaud's Syndrome, which can be difficult to diagnose:

    Diabetes.

    HIV

    Cancer

    Certain medications or combinations of medications

    Alcohol abuse

    Most any neurological disease can also cause it

    In a nutshell it's nerve damage outside of the brain and spine.

    Have you started any new medications just before the symptoms started? Lots of medications can cause it
