Name for excruciating nerve-pain in the thigh of left leg
I have an excruciating pain in left thigh of my leg once in awhile that occurs during lying down in the bed. The Gabapentin 100 mg. tid works really well and this med. also offers me a good nite-sleep.
The GP thinks I have radiating pain from the buttock to the thigh, but I told him ONLY in the thigh of my left leg.
I just forgot the name for this 'nerve-pain' which I got from the Neurologist initially when I felt a sharp and intense pain in the leg about five to seven years ago. The pain is so excruciating that I sweat to the death and need to change all of my clothes after pain started to subside. I think those who go through this sort of pain understand what this pain is.
Does anyone know the name for this 'never pain' that affects ONLY one of thighs?
