From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have tibial prosterior wich causes a lot of pain in my right ankle but recently been having what I think is nerve damage, my question is can this cause nerve damage as it's started in my right foot but now nerve and joint pain has gone to my left foot and my hand and wrists. I have smoked methamphetamine previously and worried this may have caused my nerve pain as after iv used it from lack of sleep ect. my body has all symptoms mentioned above plus more. I have not told my doctor that these symptoms are brought on after drug use& lack of sleep but wanting to know if it could be the reason. I feel it may have done damage because weeks after having methamphetamine I still have slight nerve pain. Does this sound like peripheral neuropathy ? My doctor has prescribed lyrica pregabelin and Celebrex to see if it will relieve my symptoms but after reading more about this drug the side effects sound very severe and unsure weather I should be taking it :(

From this study (3 weeks ago):
I am on Remicade once a month since July 22nd of 2013. Had a great response until I hurt my low back again. Then the back pain just worked it's way right up my spine to the neck. I have had neck fusion one level...several bad discs. A knee replacement, a shoulder reconstruction etc. The numbness and tingling in my left hand and buzzing in my left ear are driving me nuts. A recent hearing exam showed I had nerve problems there as well. Don't know what to think. Had a brain MRI it showed normal. Now thinking a spinal tap in order?
