    Talking neuropathy

    Hi Everyone,

    After reading your postings I feel so bad for all those that are in so much pain. I am 64 years old and have been dealing with pain in my calves and shins for about about 7 years. A burning feeling in my shins and aching in my calves. I used to walk a lot but that eventually had to stop. Dr. prescribed 300 mg. of neurontin a day. It did help in the beginning.
    I had all sorts of testing done and was told that the pain was caused by lumbar stenosis, lupus, fibromyalgia , peripheral neuropathy, and I think there were a few more. I was treated for all those things for a while, even had back surgery, which did help another issue, but the pain in the legs is still there. I feel like I am walking in knee high mud. I am now taking 1200 mg. of neurontin but the pain has become much worse. My steps are sooo heavy and I have to concentrate on every step that I take. I spend a lot of time sitting. I know you all understand the frustration.
