I'm new to the boards here, but glad to be here. I was suffering alone and not too many people understand what it means to be in chronic pain. I have read several stories and can relate to them all. I'm learning that my pain isn't just imaginary because others are experiecing the same symtoms. I want to thank all who share their stories because it helps people like me. I thought that I was going crazy with all the pain occuring in different areas. I have new knowledge since my visit here. My pain started with two surgeries and the last one landed me with Neuropathy. I have pain in my knees, leg, foot, first toe, right hand, shoulders, and my back. I have appointments lined up to solve the issues, but glad to see that others are speaking out. Looking at the other posts I have a thought that Neuropathy must be able to spread to different areas, but why doesn't the doctors acknowledge this?
