I have a new symptom that zaps me all day and sometimes at night. It feels like I burned the left side of my left thigh in a 5 X 8 inch area.. I'm hoping this is healing from when that area and the back of my thigh became numb before emergency surgery.
Oral pain meds don't help. I'm applying Lidocaine Patches that were prescribed 2 years ago for the same type of pain. But they don't do much to quell it. I plan on going back to the pain center if it doesn't ease-up in a week or two.
EMG showed that the nerves were still healing (after 3 years) when administered a few months ago.
By the way, I have a hard time reading this forum without weeping.
