I began having problems in the 80's. Neurologist at Walter Reed claimed it was Chronic Pain Syndrome. Others have labeled it Fibromyalgia, Peripheral Neuropathy, Parkinsonism. The symptoms include pins and needles, burning, crawling sensations, phantom glove and sock, shooting pain in the extremities, sharp stabbing pain. A lot of the pain seems to focus on previous injury sites, the most recent being the scar from a laporoscopic colectomy. A more recent symptom is severe myoclonic jerks. There is some trembling and painful toes. Numbness occurs in the fingers at times and it feels like my legs are falling asleep. My Neuorolgist originally diagnosed idiopathic polyneuropathy, but now claims to be puzzled. Has anyone else experienced anything like this and, if so, what has been done about it.
