I had surgery about 6 years ago for acid reflux. After waking up had tremendous pain in my abdomen where the scar is, later diagnosed with neuropathic pain. Every time I stretch my arms the pain hits. For some reason this also effected my left leg which nobody can tell me why, it is a bit galling you walk into hospital with 1 problem and come out with more than you want in with. Just recently started getting pins and needles through out my body but this now seems to be concentrated in my right leg. It is like hundreds of sharp needles digging into my thigh, wearing trousers just seems to make the pain worse. I am on pre-gabelin(2x300mg) for pain, my gp put me onto gabapentin as well 2x100mg but felt the pain in my thigh was 10 times worse so stopped gabapentin. I also take oral morph and find alka setzler help with pain too. Now this might not having anything to do with the pain but about 6 weeks ago a very fine vein in my leg must have burst because the bathroom floor was covered in blood, it was like a very fine tap. The only way I could stop it was to elevate the leg
