I have been experiencing horrible back pain/burning. Also my right hip is on fire. I was finally dx in Aug 07. So, I haven't a clue what to expect when I relapse again. When I was relapsing in the summer I felt the same way that I do now. My relapse started with numbness from the ribs down. Then the numbness was replaced with horrible burning in my legs, hips and back. I take neurontin 4 times a day for the burning in my legs. Otherwise the burning in my legs is constant. My question is: My husband wants me to call my neuro today. I don't want to have to drive to see her. So, do I call or do I hope that this goes away? Help!!!
