In July, 2005 I had a case of poison ivy. After 2 shots of steroids and two rounds of steroid pills, the poison ivy dried up but it left me with a stinging in my legs as if there were wasp trying to get out. It progressivly got worse. It is now in my back, fingers, legs and feet. I have had MRI's, spinal taps, nerve conductor tests, etc. and nothing can be found. However, the doctors can seen the inflammation. I did go to an allergist and found out I was allergic to many things. I am not on my fifth week of shots, but without any success with the pain I have.
The skin gets so tight, especially in my fingers and top of my ankles, that I can barely write or walk. I am scheduled for a skin biopsy next week. However, there are no lesions anywhere on my body.
I can hardly walk with my legs straight because of the pain and my legs are just losing their strength.
