I went to a clinic this evening because I have been having pain in my leg.  I have bad health anxiety and had myself convinced it was a blood clot.  Any way I went and she said that I have neuropathy.  Does any one else have this?  I recently went off my Lyrica (with rummy's permission) because I didn't feel that it was helping anymore.  Now that I am off it I realize I guess it was helping me more that I thought.  I will call him tomorrow and see what I have to do to go back on it. 
 
With the neuropathy...if anyone else ha sit, what do you do for it?  Tylenol and motrin does not touch the pain.  I am hoping that the Lyrica wil lhelp it when I go back on it.

Hi Missy,

I was told by my neurologist that I have some peripheral neuropathy. When my feet and toes hurt nothing I take helps the pain. Nerve pain is terrible and I don't think anything helps it. I can so relate to your leg pain. I was cramping so badly but that is better with the mg/malic and especially after I added the calcium. Do you have fasciculations in your calves, that is a neurological sign too and I have them.

Sorry you have this pain too.

Patsie

Yeah Patsie, I do have that...after I looked up what it meant LOL  Not only in the calves but in the thighs too sometimes.  It feels like my calves are tight all the time.  More soin the left left.  Is one of your legs affected more that the other?

Yes, Missy it seems like my left is worse. So you do have the visible fasciculations???? Now I can have them in the thighs too but almost constantly in the calves. They scared me to death and I had all the tests for MS, everything and nothing, thank God. There is a condition known as BFS, benign fasciculation syndrome, that I apparently have. After a lot of "twitching" the muscles become very tired and cramping and spasms can set in. At times the fasc. stop and often they are very mild. I have been able to directly correlate them to my anxiety level. Interesting, right??? I so understand the medical anxiety, I have been on a roller coaster being diagnosed with FMS in '08.

Talk to me when you need to, it really helps. I am a researcher and have answered many of my own issues.

thinking about you, Patsie
