Have been having burning nerve pain associated with intestinal motility for over a month now. The pain and burning radiate up to the left arm and across the pectoral muscle also triggering numbness and tingling of the left shin and foot and all the way up into left side of face and bridge of nose. Have had complete MRI of entire spine to rule out abnormalities plus Ultrasound of all organs which are OK. Heart OK, blood work OK. Have also had a supposed bout with Shingles but no one doctor convinced I had as the left armpit rash was small and not like wrap around rash. I'm told this may be PHN related but no one will confirm. The burning is directly connected and triggered by movement down below. Bowels functioning OK with no blood, or pain when moving them. Only burning shooting Neuropathy pains. Has anyone ever experienced this before ?
Thanks,
C.R.
