I'll try and not have this go on and on forever for the sake of anyone reading.
I'm feeling very stuck and think that maybe an outsiders perspective would help right now. So I'll just tell the full thing and hopefully it makes sense.
Around 6 or so years ago the skin on my upper left thigh went numb, I assumed I had slept funny or whatever. Over the weeks it began to burn and any clothing touching it was very painful. Eventually I had shooting nerve pain in the thigh whenever I was upright/walking and this has worsened steadily over the past 6 years and is giving no signs of slowing down. I have seen several doctors, was tested for athritis, sciatica etc. X-Rays, MRI's all showed nothing. I was put on numerous pain medications, physiotherapy and medication targeted directly at nerve pain/issues, all with no results.
The gradual loss of my mobility because of the pain has led to me now being agoraphobic for the past 2 years or so and have not left the house. GP's aren't helping and I have no idea what to do and what to start with as it's a pretty vicious cycle.
Anyway I've rambled, unsure what I'm even asking if i'm honest, but it helps to just get it out of my system. Sorry for any spelling mistakes etc.
