Since November of 2015, I have had a mind bending painful nerve pain issue. It occurs mainly in the evening and overnight hours, but also happens periodically whenever it wants, even in the daytime hours. The symptoms I am having are severe arm pain in my left arm from the shoulder to the elbow on the backside only. The pain levels range from a 3 to a 10. When it's a 9-10, I experience lack of coordination, dizzyness, my thought process is dramatically reduced. I lose many hours of sleep and when the pain wakes me up, I am awake for
at least 30-45 minutes each time. I have seen my regular doctor and 2 neurologists, and none of them can figure out what the problem is and how to make the pain go away. I have tried everything from cortizone shots, to pain pills, smoking marijuana and physical therapy. The only thing that helps is drinking alcohol as it numbs the pain. When I smoked marijuana, that helped but I can't do it anymore due to my job. I do have peripheral neuropathy, but my neurologist told me they are 2 different things.
