Does anyone get chronic pain in their arms, legs and back whilst trying to sleep? I haven't had a good nights sleep for a week! I have had HNPP since 1997 but the past 6 months have been horrendous. Has anyone any suggestions? PLEASE! The pain makes me cry and my painkillers are not touching the pain at all. I can accept my body is getting older but it has only been the past 6 months that these chronic pains are happening, my skin feels like it is on fire and all the nerves are sitting on the surface, even raindrops hitting my skin is excruciating Can anyone explain why all this is happening to me after all these years? I need answers and my GP is hopeless!.
