After back injury I have been receiving a back operation 8 times in my back in 4 years. My back is still in pain and now it has moved down my left leg into my foot and ankle. The doctor is telling me I have chronic arthritis with chronic back pain causing my neuropathy.

I had lung surgery 3 years ago and now I have constant neuropathic pain on my back and across my shoulder blades. I am now going for nerve blocks, hope it works.

I had shingles on my chin and now I have neuropathic pain on the right side of my face from the corner of my mouth to my ear and along my cheek.

I have numbness in the feet and legs; slow response in left leg and hot burning of both thighs with the left being the worse. I have muscle cramps under the rib cage wall below T6 which is where a tumor was removed from the spinal cord. Pain builds to the point of not being able to focus on anything but the pain (8-10 range), I can't take Neurontin.

I have pains around my lower abdomen, kidney, urethra, and testicle system. In September 2010 my kidneys were inflamed. I consulted a doctor and was treated, but I never was as 100% as before. At times I’d have inconsistent not so severe pains especially on the right lower back. I went to the clinic twice for it but it was still persistent and now this year the pain has moved down to my testes. I went to the clinic a month ago but now I still feel the kind of cold (brain freeze) type of pain on my testes. I’m so scared and I need help.

I have tried Tylenol and Advil for my neuropathic pain and they are not helpful. I have herniated disks. My doctor was giving me Percocet, but he can no longer do that because DEA has threatened to take his license. I also have a loose screw in my artificial knee. I need help. I cannot take this much pain.


Medically speaking, the term "myalgia" refers to what type of pain? See Answer
