The first time I had woke up an went to stand and fell back to the bed with the most pain iIhad ever felt in my feet. This has not stoped I have tried elevating them ice packs and sleeping differant. everytime i went to stand it felt like my feet were braking in a billion pieces. Now after 9 months it has slowly spread up my legs to just above the knee. i talk to my Dr. about it and he never even looked or did test and prescribed me lyrica and said its probably restless leg syndrom. i look this up and i do not think so.
I have been getting more and more fatigued. and even when i lye down to take a nap in the day i wake up the same way. it takes hours for this pain to get worked out. Does anyone else have this? Do you know what may be wrong?:mad: :confused:

  • At first I thought neuropathy, but Lyrica doesn't work? Is it a burning pain?

  • It sounds exactly like an impingement on your L1-L5 nerves, that control lower extremitie motion and sensation, see a Chiroprator about an exam of this lower back region. If there is a nerve root obstruction, it will cause restrictive bllod flow/ nerve damage, that only gets worse with time, and no correct diagnosis. your Chiroprator can rule out any other factors as well, (injury, stress etc.
