: I recently visited my family doctor because of pain, tingling and burning sensation in my right leg. This always became worse at night. At times, the pain was so bad it woke me from a deep sleep. He wrote the term "paresthsia" on my insurance form and ordered a nerve conduction test (couldn't get scheduled for it for almost 3 weeks tho). So...I decided to investigate on internet to see what Paresthesia was and mostly got links about peripheral neuropathy and restless legs syndrome. Just want to know what is in store for me from someone who has been there. I got tested for diabetes and i am ok. What else causes this? Dr. also put me on med called celebrex. Any one out there who can shed some light? THANKS

I'm not a doctor, but can share with you my experience with paresthesia. I currently have that, but I got it after I had surgery in my spinal cord to remove a cancerous tumor. Hope I helped. So they way I'm thinking, it may be related to some type of injury in your spinal cord. Have your Doctor order MRI of spine-it may just be a herniated disk, or a fluid build up. Something to research for you. Good luck in your health.
