I recently consulted with a different rheumatologist who sent me to a neurologist and a pain specialist. The neurologist wants to do a sleep study. My problem though is the pain in my legs. I also have pain at times in my shoulders and neck, and I have arthritis in my right foot at the base of my big toe which is hurting a lot lately.

I get alot of pain all over my body but leg pain seems to come out worse with flare ups. I go to a pain clinic weekly for shots, I'm on a butrans pain patch, and that all usually keeps me pretty settled, but for flare ups I take tramadol in between.

I experience leg pain and bruising. I get injections from my Rheumatologist in all the tender or sometimes they are called trigger points in my Rhomboids, in my sciatica notch and my IT band, I get leg pain mostly in my left leg. I also have Osteo in both of my big toes that my podiatrist gives me and my shoulder doctor gives me an injection right into the insertion of the rotator cuff. They are temporary but that's my only option due to my GI doctor which I cannot take any meds for pain.
Tonic water is good...I hate the leg pain and there are times it feels like all the nerves in my legs just want to jump out of your skin...crazy feeling makes you want to scream. Yes I take Tramadol and Hydrocodone low doses along with cymbalta and lyrica. Getting back epidural tomorrow.
