I am writing about my father, a 71 year old male with high blood pressure. He is crippled by a constant pain in his right leg. Above the knee he has a very deep pain in his thigh that is constant - he calls it a constant ache. Below the knee he has leg numbness, sometimes a stabbing pain, and a burning sensation. He says that it feels like a sunburn if you touch his skin below the knee. He has had it for six months and has been to a neurologist and pain management with no help. Today he saw a specialist two hours away and the guy had no idea. He says his spine looks fine and MRI of his leg and spine and CAT scans show nothing. I don't know where to go from here- he is so depressed and I am not sure how to research this to try to find answers. I would appreciate anyone's help.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
