Does anyone know what it is? what do you do or take to get out of pain?
With the pain you've described, all of which sounds like nerve pain, I believe you're at a level where you need a specialist - either a neurologist or a "pain specialist". Suggest that you ask your GP for a referral letter to one of these doctors and get copies of all of your scans, blood work ups, anything that might be of use to the doctor. Re. the specialist, you can choose your own or allow your GP to make the choice. It might be worth while to use the Internet to do some research aimed at finding a specialist that patients have generally been pleased with. One or more searches may turn up some helpful recommendations. Patients who are pleased or unhappy with their specialist often post their results to websites that rate doctors. With as much pain as you've described, I suspect that you'll never be able to eliminate all of it. But some of it may be treatable. Good luck.
I have the very same thing I am 45 yrs old. There's also something called
Parathesia that can make your face and fingers and feet go numb and tingling. However if you have nerve damage you can try a chiropractor for a few weeks. The doctor can try cortisone and finally surgery.
