Glove and Stocking Syndrome


  I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia because of numbness in the hands
  feet.  I have no other symptoms.  My EMG was normal and they have ruled out
  MS.  I don't think I have fibro and recently found out that 2 of my
  relatives have Glove and Stocking Syndrome where they have numb hands and
  feet.  I cannot find any information on this anywhere.  Do you know what
  the medical name is and where I can find out about it?  Thanks.

Thankd for the question. In neurology we generally refer to "stocking and glove" as regional sensory loss due to certain diseases known to cause loss of sensation in the feet and hands. It can be due to a wide variety of systemic illnesses and chronic intoxications. The differential diagnosis is wide and if it is running in the family it may be worthwhile to see a doctor that specializes in these type of disorders. If you wish a referral to CCF call 216 444 5559.
