Hello everyone, this is my first post but I've been reading posts here for months. For the last year and a half, I've been suffering with Meralgia Paresthetica in my right leg. This is where the nerve associated with the outer thigh (Lateral Cutaneous Femoral Nerve) goes bonkers. It's the typical symptoms of nerve pain. The burning, stabbing shock like pain that most of you are well aware of. For over a year, my GP was treating my pain with Gabapentin and morphine. After being mostly unsuccessful, he turned me over to a Pain management doctor who has been a godsend. He has been treating my pain by keeping me on what my GP had me on but has added Nortryptiline and oxycodone for break through pain. Besides treating the pain, this doctor is trying to find the cause. I recently started getting symptoms in my other leg. Due to this, the doctor is concerned that that there may be more going on than just the meralgia paresthetica. I'll be going for an MRI of my brain soon. I just wanted to say hi to you all and hope to be a contributing member of this forum.
