Good morning I wrote about this a few months ago and have been suffering with byrning in the lower part of my legs for 9 months . Have been on sever different tablets over this perio a and ended up taking 600 mg a day of Pregabilin. I saw different doctors in this time due to me changing surgerys and then doctors kept leaving . They all said the same it was restless legs even though I kept saying that it wasn't as my legs were not moving and I had no sensation that I wanted them to .
I was referred to a neurologist and after waiting 17 weeks for the appointment I went to see her for the 15 minute appointment only to be told yet again restless legs , she even sent me a letter saying this , but did say I was to have an MRI scan. Well another 6 weeks passes and I had the scan. The outcome according to the neurologist is I have transverse myelitis something quite rare. I read about it and cried my eyes out as the outcome was horrendous . Then I read more and again the description is nothing really as to what I have . Needles to say the tablets are in the bin, a waste of tax payers money and mine I might add for the past 9 months . I have another appontment with the neurologist in 5 weeks so any of of you sufferers watch this space
