I suffer with burning legs every time I go to bed. It worsens as the night goes on.

This all started quite some time ago when my heels were so sensitive when resting on the bed that I had to put a rolled up pillow under my ankles to raise my heels from touching the bed. If they touched I couldn't bear it for long and had to keep moving them around. Now this has worsened to Burning legs. It is as though I am lying on an electric blanket they tingle and burn so much that I am continually searching for cold areas in the bed to relieve the symptoms. The only real relief is when I get out of bed.

Also for the past 3 and half years I have had inflamed ribs (Costo-Condritis?), also at its worst when I go to bed! Pressure builds up and I have to roll over to relive the pressure. Its the same on either side and if I lay on my back. So much so that I feel nauseous.

My GP says that the two conditions are linked. I have had a consultation with a nerve specialist, X-Rays, Ultra sound, MRI Scan but non of these tests identify any problems! At least I know it is nothing sinister. No real diagnosis, no successful medication, no idea how long this will be with me. I am fine during the day until the evening arrives and I start to get a burning pain in the centre of the top of my back. Then I know I am going to have a bad night. If fact as I am typing this comment it has started again!!! I dread going to bed.
