Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • I have been in pain and have suffered for over 7 years with muscle pain with cramping, aching, burning, stinging, pins/needles, weakness, numbness and paralysis, etc. I live with fatigue and utter exhaustion everyday and hate having to take medicine period, but have no choice in the matter. I know that this is something serious..I can feel it. I just have to get the Doctors, to find it...and fix whatever it is that is wrong.
    I am trying to find what is the root cause of it all, then I might be able to find some relief.."Lord Willing". I have always been a driven individual and love life. I am a fighter and a survivor, so I will continue forward..until I find a way to the answer.
    The pain level stays around 5 or 6 everyday and can be overwhelming at times, but I pray and I find relief for a moment..from The Lord. Grateful to be alive. Just want life to be normal again and to be able, to spend my time with my family that I have missed so much of.

  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • Started 8 days ago with only left leg, knee to toes numb, tingly and pins and needles with my knee purple and reddish in color when I got cool. Next day it was the right leg, knee to toes along with the left. That night it was both arms elbow to fingertips along with the legs, knees to toes. Went to doctor and he ran blood work that showed I was low on B12 and Potassium vitamins.He prescribed me steroids and ordered me to take vitamins and if not better in 2-3 days he would run tests for peripheral neuropathy. Made another app. for this coming up Tuesday. Things have only gotten worse sense I saw doctor, no good changes. I hurt all over now in my muscles and it kinda feels as if my vanes are being tied in knots,burns and aches terribly. Are these signs of peripheral neuropathy?
