Undiagnosed Nerve Pain in the Legs

Hi everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone else has had or is experiencing a similar situation of undiagnosed nerve pain in both legs?

I experience burning in my hamstrings which radiates down the back of my thighs, tingling in my feet, sharp stabbing pains in my hips and hamstrings, muscle spasms throughout the entire leg and feet, muscle twitching -especially in my toes and feet, extreme leg muscle tightness- that lasts for about four days with a flare up, and muscle cramping in my feet, calves, and thighs. I remember going on the exercise bike one day and feeling a cool sensation in my thigh like a bunch of icy veins were squeezing the muscle in when I tried to pedal. It felt bizzare and I decided to stop and contact a doctor.

My symptoms worsen with "too much" activity, though my definition of "too much" is hardly any at all. I may have a good period for a while where I very slowly build up my muscles and am able to do yoga and walk around, but then, all of a sudden, I'll do a bit more than usual, and BAM. Back to not being able to walk around again without extreme leg muscle tightness and pain for about four days . Then I have to very slowly add in walking, and often have repeated leg flare ups where I am unable to return to my previous state and can hardly move around. It's almost like something is restricting my movement. I have been experiencing these symptoms for five years. It began with extreme leg antzyness-almost to the point of pain- in high school, which, at first could be relieved with exercise, but is now worsened with it.

Currently, I have had a MRI on my spine, nerve conduction testing, vascular testing, all of which have not shown any issues. I am just waiting for an MRI on my pelvis/ hamstrings. I never thought I'd ever wish to find something wrong, but in this case, I hope to so that I can try to treat the problem and attempt to get on with my life.

Sound familiar to anyone? Please feel free to give me a shout!
