Polyradiculoneuropathy & Restless Legs Syndrome

After years of suffering sever RLS I hear about a well updated and popular Orthopedist and decided to share my RLS history with him, after we discussed my case he send me for a new EMG and NCV tests and the result was concluded as :

Polyradiculoneuropathy; but Qudaequina SX.couldnot be excluded. MRI is recommended ( numbness in feet )

With all my med history, including those test results, My Doctor was convinced that my nerve roots leaving spine through back bone nerve tunnel were under the pressure of inflammation within the tunnel, so he gave me 2 injection adjust to the erea on my back bone to ease the inflammation and he also prescribe half tablet of Tizanidine 4 every night and Naproxen 500 every 12 hours + CM topical lotion applying on my foot 3 times a day.

From that day ( 18 th of march ) I did not take my routine meds of Indomethacin 75mg + Gabapentine 300 mg and since then I did not have any painful tingling attacks on my foot, this could be by chance because previously in past I had calm foot for several days but I have a good feeling of getting positive results from my new treatment.

I am supposed to visit my Doc this coming Wednesday to proceed my treatment and I would be happy to share my further treatment plan. Thanks

About Dr. Ejtehadi, he is young but well devoted to his carrier I had an appointment for 11 pm but I got in at 2 am because of many patients his time spending with patients .After me there were still patients waiting there, his secretary said he works till 4 am !!! .
