Nerve damage, source?


I am a male of 66 years.

I have developed a burning sensation which started on the top of my right quadricept, accompanied with lack of sensitivity to touch.

This has spread over the past few years and now starts in my lower back and continues down around the outside of my hip to the quadracept and down to the outside of the calf, then to the outside of my heel. I am also noticing a little on my other quadracept, lately. This also more pronounced after gym exercise and is accompanied by some muscle pain.

I also had polio as a child, which left me with no apparent physical issues, however, I have learned that no matter the appearance, all polio victims did suffer nerve damage and it appears later in one way or another. The name is post-polio syndrome.

I have also been statin drugs for 7 years, which I am discontinuing for a while to see if they are the cause.

I have also been diagnosed insulin intolerant, but now have good readings.

I would appreciate it if anyone has an insight as to the source of my burning sensation and lack of sensitivity to touch described above.

Thank you,
