Burning pain from toes to hands
I had 2 back surgeries. The last one was an anterior/posterior fusion from L4-S1 on Nov 1, 2006. I have had leg and feet numbness with some back burning pain for over a year now. For the past 3 months now I have been experiencing severe burning pain in my feet, legs entire back, arms and hands. When I sit it gets much worse. If I try and drive within a few minutes the burning in my hands is so hot I have to take my left hand off the steering wheel. I feel the burning in my groin also. I notice that I have to urinate all the time . My ortho-surgeon has no idea why I am burning. All he seems to care about is that his fusion looks good on x-ray and it is solid looking. Work comp wants to send me to the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago to get evaluated in the Chronic Pain Program. I need to find out why my body is burning up. Does anyone have any ideas why ? I am also in pain management taking Opana ER, Topamax, Effexor Xr and Ambien to sleep. I have had 8 epidurals in the past 3 years and 10 months of PT. I just can't stand this burning pain. I called the surgeons office today for a referral. He told me when I saw him this week that he would welcome a second opinion. What kind of doctor should I see for this kind of pain? Is this neuropathic pain?
