As some of you know I have had a prickly painful feeling on my nerve endings of my legs for 3 years. I've had it twice before, but both times it has gone away. I've been tested extensively and no cause can be found (MRI's, the works). I had a terrible flu and hurt my lower back the first time this occurred. My doctor thinks it could be lower back related, but a neurologist I saw didn't think so, but he wasn't sure. I'm in limbo and freaked out. At one point my doctor thought it might be anxiety related, as I've had other anxiety related symptoms in the past.
This is so upsetting and it interferes with my life. I'm thinking of pushing to see a rheumatologist, as that is the one route I haven't gone. My neurologist said that things like lupus etc. don't present themselves that way. I don't have MS... WTF.
What would you do in my situation? Am I looking at this all wrong or what?
Some input would be very appreciated.
