My father-in-law has been through a lot this past year. He went in for double knee replacement surgery and ended up having a stroke. That was in May 2005. Since then he has had problems with his arm. Pain, burning, heaviness, shakiness occur almost 24 hours a day with no reprieve. He has seen several different doctors. He had surgery to repair a nerve and remove a bone chip. No one knows what is wrong with him. He has been doing therapy for several months. Nothing seems to help. He cries a lot and is very depressed because he thinks he will have to live with this for the rest of his life (69 years old now). The only thing left is pain management. Anyone have any ideas?
