Small fibre neuropathy may have implications for the ability to work. Pain may be troublesome, and adaptations in tempo, duration or workload may be needed. Also concentration problems may play a role in workload capacity.
A company doctor may be helpful in arranging adaptations in working conditions. Patients treated at the Maastricht UMC+ will receive a letter with the results of the tests performed. They can share this information with their company doctor, if needed.
