could this be ms

my husband for about the past six months has been having severe leg and foot pain. He said he feels like he has a tooth ache in his big toe. He also said that his toes and feet feel like they are numb pins and needles I guess, but he can still feel touch on them . Sometimes the pain is so bad that he will ask me to rub them but when I go to touch them so I can rub he cannot stand for you to touch them he said it feels like I am stabbing them with a knife when I do. He cannot sleep, he cant walk for long periods and he cant set or lie down with them. we are at our wits end. He went to the dr. they didnt even do any test, just said it sounds like poor circulation and but him on trental 400 mg. and an 81 mg of asprin and crestor, he has been taking this for almost a month now, with no relief. we need help

Re: could this be ms

I'm so sorry he didn't get adequate attention from the doctor. His symptoms could be related to so very many possible conditions, and you deserve better care. I would recommend a different doctor if you can, or at very least a return to the original doc, tell them he's had no relief at all and insist on further evaluation.
