i had an accident in 1995 causing paralysis in my lower body. after 6 years i finally had an operation that allowed me to walk again but still suffer terrible back pains. for the last 8 months i have developed unbearable pains in my legs & feet which my GP has treated with pain killers to maximum level i can have without going into hospital. the pains are like balls of fire that come on suddenly without pattern although they are worst when i am sitting/laying down. nights are horrendous and i could scream at the pain. Sometimes i wish i had never had the operation..at least i wouldn't feel this pain. GP now thinks its not related to back injury and has tried stopping statin, beta blockers, iron tabs and all sorts of pain killers but nothing helps I am getting desperate now...i also suffer from depression and this is not helping..i just dont know what to do...any suggestions would be appreciated.
