I am new here but am so glad I found this message board. I have had questions about neuropathy and noone to ask. I will try and not run us out of room.

I have had problems with my feet for atleast 15 years. Doctors use to tel me to lose 15 lbs, buy different shoes things like that. Well I was diagnosed with Restless leg Syndrome and it has esculated since then. I have several question I have wanted to ask people with neuropathy and they are...Do your legs jerk involuntarily when pain shoot thru your legs and feet? Do your legs someimes go out while walking? Do you have to sleep in a recliner or elevated in bed? (I have slept in a recliner for atleast 10 years). Has anyone else had problems with their vision, does neuropathy affect that? Does this just get worse, is there no end? Does anyone else feel as if you have turned into a whiner/complainer?

I don't know what to do next. I have carpal tunnel but they won't do surgery because of the neuropathy. They say it won't do any good because of the neuropathy. They can't find out why I have neuropathy because I am not diabetic. I have had an MRI done to check for spinal stenosis. I am not suppose to have it but I do have all bulging disc but 2 from my neck down. I have osteoarthritis in my neck, I guess the spurs and putting pressure on my spinal fluid (or something like that) They also say that they may do a dye test in my lumbar area to see if they are missing a stenosis, I guess I do have some of the symptoms. That is why I am not sure if all my symptoms are from neuropathy.

Does anyone else get up in the morning just feeling like you were ran over by a truck and just hurt all over? I am not sure if that is neuropathy. Does eveyday of your life revolve around just getting thru the day? I hate this and don't know what to do about it. I use to be a very active fun individual, I was always considered the rock of my family. Now I feel as if I am a burden to everyone around me.

What keeps me going is that i know there are people out there that have worse problems. So, I put one foot in front of the other and tell myself to stop whining and I keep going.

I thank you for reading my post, just the venting makes me feel better.
