    I'm sorry this has happened . I started in right foot , leapt to my right hand , neck and ear , it then leapt left hand , left ribcage, and left for . Also the symptomology is the same , however the freezer burning stays at the source . I too was 2014 .

    Sadly that is what happens. The earlier the treatment, the better

    the results. I've been suffering for eight years now because of

    paperwork and health insurance complications. It's so very

    exhausting. Find what works for you and keep doing it. I use my

    art helps me get my head and heart away from the pain. Good

    luck to you. Stay on your doctors and if you get depressed, get

    help right away.

    I understand what you are going through.  I was diagnosed in 2013 after posterior anterior back surgery and unfortantely it has spread throughout my entire body including my brain.  It attacked my muscles so now can't hardly walk without meds for rhumatoid arthritis.  They say that the sooner you get help the less it will spread but when you deal with federal comp you have to have it for a year before they will even acknowledge it.  By then I was screwed.  Every treatment I have tried just caused more nerve damage. I wish I could help you  but even I am out of options.  Wish you all the best and may god bless you and give you the strength.  I will pray for you
