This symptom just seems to get worse and worse. I wake in the morning and even with increasing my first dose of the day to 2.5 25/100 tablets, the leg pain doesn't subside until close to 3 hours later and then comes back before the second dose, which is 2 tabs. Sometimes I have the pain all day. It's in both buttocks, left thigh front and back, and left ankle. Sometimes it's a deep ache but it can also be a sharp cramping pain if I move too quickly or in the wrong way...
Laurie Mischley suggested I might want to try Apokyn first thing in the AM. Not sure I can afford it but I'm wondering if anyone has tried this.
I use magnesium oil and it helps a little for a short while, but not a solution. I also take magnesium supplements.
I'm wondering if the following might help:
Stopping eating meat?
Any supplements I should try or lab tests I should do to rule out some deficiency?
I've tried B1 several times at dosages from 100 up to 4000mg. Each time it gave me hip pain similar to what I'm feeling now, so I'm reticent to give it another try.
I'm doing core strength exercises because I noticed that if I engage my core muscles, it reduces the pain.
This started maybe a year and a half ago, but it wasn't nearly this intense and it went away when I increased my C/L dose. Now I'm at a dose that's starting to give me dyskinesia.
I would be super grateful for any suggestions.
