PLEASE HELP ME! I'm suffering with severe burning pain every single night and the doctors don't know

Posted , 2 users are following.

For a while now, I've suffered with leg pains, I believe it to be genetic due to my father and his other daughter having the same issues, but mines alot worse!, every second of the day I feel extreme burning pain through-out my body, like as if i am covered in lava, I can't breathe at night and I barely get any sleep. I did so much research and I'm not 100% sure but it seems like Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS), because the joins on my kneed move more than they should... I went to 3 hospitals already in florida, one in lakeland, one in bartow, and one in tampa, hoping to find some answers, and nothing. the doctors don't know what the hell this is... they suggesting a brain cat scan i MIGHT be getting tommorrow, and to go seek a nurologist and pain specialist, wanna know the kicker? my insurance ends on the 31st of December , and they only have appontments in march, and APRIL!.

I've done all my research and i dont know what to do anymore, death seems to be a better option than the s**t i'm going through, 3 hospitals and no one has a clue whats wrong with me... what did i ever do to deserve this...

    See a vascular specialist . Sounds like it could be blocked artery or better known as PAD. Peripheral artery disease. Nerve pain is what you have described from blocked arteries in legs causing horrible burning pain . It's worse at night when laying flat as the blockage prevents blood from passing down to your lower extremities. when you get up and stand to walk the pain is solved due to the vertical position of standing pushing blood flow toward the lower legs and feet. This is a common disorder over 200 million world wide have PAD.

    Depending on what stage your in generally the early stages can be controlled by diet , medications , lifenstyle change and exercise.
