Hi there nice to chat to you !

Yes I have seen a Neurologist , if you have been refered everything will be assessed in that appointment and you will be asked a lot of questions to do with your problems.

What medication have you been given and have you chatted to your GP about your medicatoins not helping ?

My neck went and i have pins and needles in both sides and was so not very nice and i think that you find a lot will have or is experienceing the same things and either have some form of relief or not , as we all take to medications differently .

I am on LYrica (pre-gabalin ) and pain meds .

Please always discuss with your Dr if you are not happy with things and keep updated with things.

I have seen a rheumatologist but they only added meds that my drs have not given me!i used to take naproxen but it didn't work and pizotifen again it didn't work.now I just take adcal d3 and gabapentin.

Unfortunately my drs do not seem to understand fibro.it is insuring to say the least.

I just need some help with the neurological symptoms as they are unbearable and it has been noticed from the paralyse I have weakness!
