Thank you for that lengthy response. I am sorry I have not been into the forum earlier to reply to it.
I am waiting to see a neurologist at the moment to see if he can figure out why I have pins and needles in my legs. I have seen an Orthopaedic surgeon (which scared the life out of me, anything with surgeon on the end gets me all nervous), the reason is I have far too many operations in my life and do not want anymore. Anyway, as I say I have been to see this guy, who was very nice, showed me the MRI scan and X rays that were taken but he said that there was nothing he could do for me which is why he has referred me to a neurologist, now personally I cannot see him doing anything either. Time will tell. I guess.
I am doing some research on the net regarding this issue but so far I have drawn a blank but I will keep going, somewhere must mention pins and needles in PPS.
I feel that my body is falling apart on me, I have now been diagnosed with Osteo Arthritis which causes me a lot of pain and is making life almost intolerable. Got to the stage I can hardly dress myself. I have been given 2 different prescriptions for anti inflammatory medication by my General Practitioner both have upset my IBS, so much so that I cannot continue with them, which is a real shame as they were working and the pain was going, now I have stopped it has returned more than ever. I am now afraid to try yet another anti inflammatory in case I get the same after effects but I do know that something has to be done otherwise my life as I know it will cease because of the pain I am in.
People that know me know I do not tend to moan and groan and I can take pain but this is ridiculous, I cannot even hold a cup of tea without pain in my left thumb and to peel potatoes these days is a no go area. I live alone and have to be independent and the pain is right now stopping me from being sow, even typing is becoming a problem.
I have had to stop playing my beloved flute because of the pain, this was my release from the world and also my only social evening out, again no more as it hurts too much to even hold the flute, let alone play it.
I am sorry for all the moans and groans I have done in this posting but I just had to tell some people that know what I am talking about and going through.
Thank you for reading.
