Hello everyone,

I have had this for nearly 5 years now, and it just keeps getting worse. I started out active and healthy, tried long periods of rest, high activity, yoga, chiropractor, I have had an MRI which the only comment by the doctor was he could see a reason for the discomfort and recommended I try a book called "treat your own back" which I did religiously for 2 years.

The burning sensation and pain in contact is so severe now it's almost impossible to sleep, my right thigh was first but now it's in my knee and recently my right big toe. Many days i am almost crippled with pain, i can walk but it is very unpleasant.

I have self diagnosed meralgia paresthetica and am certain, it was very hard to explain the type of sensation and pain and it has taken this long to find what indeed it is i am suffering from.

Has anyone from New Zealand suffered from and found a solution for this problem? Or does anyone else have any advice? I am starting to really get worn down now from it i need to find out at least something to relieve it so i can sleep.

Thanks in advance
