Question Severe lower leg/calf pain. Anyone have any help?

Began about 6 months ago. First as leg cramps during the night in one leg. Then both. Then it progressed to nerve pain in both calves. No muscle cramping now but that's exactly what it feels like along with stiffness.

First went to a vascular, then reumo, then neuro. Now going to a neuro muscular specialist next week

Had two MRI, neck & back. Nothing. EMG showed a loss of signal indicating possible nerve blockage or damage but since the MRI's didn't show any bulging disks my neuro was stumped.

Medications (Baclofen, Lyrica, Neurotin, Zanaflex) help a bit but the pain is constant and the weakness is such that I cannot stand and must use a cane for support. Stopped taking my chorlrestoral medicine on advise of my regular doc thinking that may be causing it. Nope. Countless blood tests are all normal. Read about magnesium but that's normal too.

Need help on what to ask the nuero muscular specialist next week or looking for any help.

Thanks so much
