peripheral neuropathy

I have had peripheral neuropathy in both feet/legs for 4 years, which makes walking very difficult.  I have been examined by many different medical specialists (neurologist, allergist, podiatrist, rheumatologist, chiropractor, naturopath) with no one able to make a diagnosis.   I have a difficult time absorbing nutrients and keeping weight on, so one doctor thinks I may have metabolic neuropathy.  I do have a homozygous mutation of the MTHFR gene at C677 location and feel slightly better taking an methlyfolate supplement.

Do you have any suggestion on further treatment, or additional genetic testing ?

I had peripheral neuropathy 20  years ago, but after 4 neropathy doctors, who just treated me as a diabetic, The fifth found the cause  to be from sulfa drugs. Since then I have dead nerves from the knees down. ( find another doctor!).
