Don't be nervous. At least if you find the cause you can look at treatment, as it will vary depending on the cause. Just make sure you get all the answers you seek and don't leave until you understand what the doctor is telling you.

You are most welcome. Sounds a little like what I developed after being struck by three TIAs (ministrokes). I had difficulty walking and balancing and my legs would just give out on me. I saw a Neuro also for that. So many medical difficulties seem to have similar symptoms

That depends on the cause of the neuropathy as there are many causes, which includes: "Physical trauma, repetitive injury, infection, metabolic problems and exposure to toxins and some drugs" for more info see ~ http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/1479...

So if you are exposed to a toxin the wise course of action would be to stop the exposure and find out how to detox from that esposure. If it is due to repetive injury the wise course of action would be to stop using that body part and give it a rest, or decompress the damaged nerve.

Since this occurs only on the right leg I would guess that it has something to do with what is happening with that leg (of course I could be wrong). I doubt that it would be diabetes related, since usually with the legs and arms the neuropathy would be on both sides of the body.

So get yourself to a Dr and let Dr determine what is causing it, and what course of action you can take about it

God's best to you
