Hi, I'm new here. Had gradually worsening pains over 3 years starting with gnawing sensation in inside right ankle, had mild back problems for years but now more or less permanent thigh pain, a very sharp pain in right inner shin when touched and pains all around my right heel. Just going back for a second root nerve block in my back but not convinced it will help, nor are the docs. Has anyone else experienced any thing similar? Painkillers don't help much just seem to constipated! Would appreciate hearing from any fellow sufferers.
