Trying to figure out pain sensation

I get this pain that is affecting my arms,back upper and lower and going into my legs and feet. It is a sensation of being pinched tightly inside and stung like from a wasp that packs a wallop on you. All deep inside my skin to the bone. It makes me about nauseated when it hits me. It can happen many times a day all over my body on different sides of arm or legs. My good side or bad side. Almost achy feeling sometimes like a toothache and then it will move on to a different part of my body as quick as it came on, it's gone. Anyone get something similar to this? I don't know if this is a nerve thing going on or a muscle cramping problem. Does this sound like anyone else?


  • I also get pains all over the place!

    That 'wasp sting' feeling that makes me jump, there for a moment, and then it is gone. I also have an achy feeling, particularly in my arms and shoulders.
    I am experiencing so many other pains and symptoms too.

    Now, I can't tell you what is causing it, because I am still waiting to find out. :?

    I have been told that it could be my neck (even the foot and leg symptoms), from my thoracic spine or my lower back (where I have already had a fusion a year ago).

    I am awaiting an MRI scan on my lumbar spine, and also an appointment with a neurosurgeon to get the results of an MRI scan on my neck.

    Last week, I found out that I have very low levels of Vitamin D and calcium, and the symptoms of that are tingling, numbness, pins and needles and even muscle twitching and cramps; all of which are symptoms that I am experiencing.

    I think it will be a puzzle to find out exactly what is causing my problems, and am aware than it could be more than one thing. I hope that my neurosurgeon is good at puzzles!

    I suggest you get an appointment with a medically trained doctor, to start the process of finding out what is causing your symptoms.
  • Thanks, I did not think about it ever being about what I was or wasn't eating. Makes sense. I have been so wrapped up in nerves and muscles that I have forgot about the rest of my body. LOL I am sure that I do not get the right vitamins and what vitamins I get I deplete with some of the meds I take. Something I should be looking in to. Thanks for the input.
  • Hey every one go through this stage. I am not saying that we should avoid it but yes i too gone through this stage so i could realize how much it will be paining to you.
  • What you describe I have been able to tie directly to nerve pain. When I take the neuro drugs the symptoms lessen and frequency drops. Not always 100% but to a tolerable level.

    Have you been to an orthopedist or neurologist? Either should be able to trace back to the cause of the problem. I would start a detailed pain log where you list the date, time, body part, feeling and how long it lasts. Do this for a week and you will have a very clear picture of what is going on.
