Here is My Question:
My daughter has MS and I have small fibre neuropathy. Is this genetic?
Neuropathies can be classified as hereditary or non-hereditary, so it is possible for a neuropathy to be genetic. A neurologist should do a history, physical and determine which tests for neuropathy causes should be ordered.
