I have been to 6 doctors now, and no one can figure out what's wrong with me. I'm getting a little frustrated, and am wondering if anyone can suggest what it might be, or if they have gone through this too.
It started out as an itch underneath my skin, and now feels like a ball of burning magma lodged in my thigh. It doesn't originate from my back, nor shoot down my leg like sciatica would do. It is worse when I walk or stand for too long on it. Pain relievers do not help, and muscle relaxers don't do anything. I've tried excercises, chiropractic... naturopathy. I'm at my wit's end here.
I was told my back is fine from the xrays as well, so I don't think it is a herniated disk. All doctors are wanting to do is to give me more pain killers (ie Tylenol, Aspirin, Vicadin, etc.) which do nothing but make me sick to my stomach.
Can anyone help??
Thank you for your time.
Josie J.
