Hello everybody. Three years ago I started to experience tightenss in my calfs which began after having surgery for prostate cancer. This evolved into severe twitching and I was given an EMG which showed nerve damage. However, since then it has now progressed and I now suffer severe burning in my feet and ankles, tingling and sensitive to touch. My hands feel like they have been 'nettled'. My limbs ache and a sensation of electricity running through them. The left side of my face, tongue and lips tingle and throb. My sleep is badly disturbed because everything is worse at night or when I relax, or at least I feel it more then. I have been tested for MS, Motor Neurone etc., all were negative. My blood tests come back clear and I have had an MRI on my brain which was normal. I take Pregabelin which takes the edge off my syptoms. I have B12 deficiency and get regular injections to keep this right. However, I also have a long standing neck problem C6/C7 bulging disc resting on a nerve but everything has been attributed to the neuropathy.
