Chronic pain symptoms changing

I'm on year 4 of having pain issues. Like many it had been a difficult and lonely journey do I thought I would give a forum a try for the first time. The pain starts in my right shoulder and travels round my back and my right arm. Last year I was diagnosed with chronic neuropathic pain.

Over the last few months I've had the odd day of "growing pains" in my right leg, it is like an extremely sore spasm or cramp round my knee and ankle traveling up and down. Normally it last a day max but I'm now on day three.

I have also had internal tremors for the last few weeks, again a system that used to only last a few hours a day or two max, but now they are getting worse and they are showing physically.

I'm 24 and hate going to the doctors as I was always made to feel like I wasn't taken seriously and that it was all in my head. I want to go to the doctors as this addition to my symptoms is impacting on my life but I feel like it will simply be dismissed as part of my condition.

Has anyone else ever experienced new symptoms/these symptoms and should I go see someone about this?

Re: Chronic pain symptoms changing

Hi there. I am really sorry that you are feeling this way. I have allot of the same symptoms and neuropathy in my hands and legs/ feet. Mine is caused by having Multiple Sclerosis. It wasnt know that I had MS until I was given a brain scan (MRI) ...

Have you seen any type of specialist? A neurologist, orthopedic, or even a Rheumatologist? All of these specialties see diseases with similar symptoms to yours.

What kind of doctor have you seen and what type of medications are you on? IT really sounds like you haven't found the right doctor yet.

Re: Chronic pain symptoms changing

Thank you for getting back to me.
If I'm honest my doctors have been a nightmare and I spent two years getting sent a physio who was unable to make any difference.

I have never been offered any kind of scan or seen any of the specialists you have mentioned. Unfortunately being on the NHS I'm kind of in the hands of my doctor. However I am trying to get a referral back to my pain management specialist as he was the closest to understanding what was going on.
