I am so glad I found this board because others are going thru the same pain I am. I've been to doctors who wanted to send me to a shrink because they thought my chronic pain was depression or all in my head because all my blood tests come back normal.
Yes, I have the nerve jumpies too. Especially if I don't lay down for a while in the afternoon. I liken it to being on the bed when the dog is scratching his ears. It's VERY annoying. And you are right about the lame process of getting diagnosed. That's the most frustrating feeling I've ever had. And male or female, the doctors tell you the same things at first. First I was diagnosed with RNDS - Reflex Nerve Dystrophy Syndrome. I had tubes put in my spine and was injected with Alpha and Beta blockers. What a crock! Then it was RLS - Restless Leg Syndrome. The doctors (all 6 of them) tested for lymes disease, lupus, multiple sclerosis, just to name a few. Then came the pressure point tests. PAINFUL!
Now I've been to an acupuncturist and that's releived the jumping nerves to a point. I still need to rest my legs for at least an hour in the afternoon, or I can't sleep at night.
