I'm a 24 year old male and

For 4 months now I've had some strange symtoms.

Legs and arms aches that come ago often: (especially calves and forearms)

Tingling in these areas

Spasms mostly in my calves

Finger pain

Feet pain

I've done many blood tests :

Vitimin dif



Muscle breakdown



I've seen a physiotherapist and blood pressure is fine

I was prescribed neproxen and that's the only thing that helps me .

Been on them twice and pain goes away completely but every time I come off them my symtoms come back .

It doesn't disturb my sleep and my symptoms come on 10 minutes after waking up .

I have an appointment with a rhumatologist in March

Doctor said if nothing comes from my appointment and would then be sent to a neurologist and if that's all fine it could be anxiety

Anyone have anything similar or ideas ?

    The only thing I can think of is Peripheral Neuropathy. I just turned 63 on the 14th so I'm a whole lot older than you. I was diagnosed with peripheral Neuropathy back in 2005, but dumb me I thought Peripheral Neuropathy was the same thing as diabetic nerve pain. I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes in 2011 and I thought for some reason the two were the same. They're not. Diabetic nerve pain does attack the feet and hands but Peripheral Neuropathy can attack any where. Do some research. I hope this helps.

      Hi Jon. Yes I've befinately got some peripheral nerve problem for sure at first it seemed to just be down my right leg and they've been sure it's due to Zl5 disc degeneration in my spine causing S1 root nerve to be annoyed. But now I've got muscle twitching in both legs and recently in this last week it's in bothe arms also. So my local hospitsl is referring me to see a neurologist professor in London I'm waiting to receive the date bloody soon I hope. I get sharp shooting pains across my chest also now and then so it's a bit scarey. //: you've had nerve probs for some time by the sounds of it your a nerve problem specialist then a bit.
