OMG...Finally, someone who actually knows what I try to get my doctors to understand as to what the almost unbearable pain in MY legs feels like!!!
I also suffer with CFS, FMS, add in muscle atrophy in feet, legs, arms and hands. Then add into that moderate to severe chronic pain, Neuropathy (due to nerve damage from back and neck (C5~8, T11~12, L4~5+).....and more. All due to a back injury, on the job, in 1983, failed Laminectomy in `85.
I used to walk with a cane (always a limp) and a walker for the last year. Im not that old, either. The P~A~I~N gets so bad at times, I want my legs gone. I can never seem to get doctors to quite understand when I tell them how bad the pain is
, but feels like its `in the bone`.
