My family and I would really appreciate any help with this.  The
following is everything that my grandmother has been through in the
past few months and we still haven't found any help.  We would like to
know a definiton of neurapathy, if it she has the symptoms, where we
might find other sources of information on the subject, and what type
of doctor to see for help.  Thanks!
