At age 13 I was told by my dr I had arthiritis in my knees as bad as an old person. Living with that wasnnt so bad until the last few years. At 32 now and have accumilated nerve damage that shoots unbelievable pain thru my upper legs and into my knees which are much worse now. My dr has me taking baclafen and neurontin with over the counter aleve. I haven't slept more than two hrs a night in a month. I have tried every cream rub spray but still no sleep. After going to my dr Monday and telling him this he did nothing. I obviously need to find a new dr but is there anything I can do now? I just want a good nights rest and relief from my constant leg pains. Please help!View Thread
