Neurological symptoms in legs and arms experiencing hyperesthesia(NOT painful) and sometimes numbness and erratic mild muscle pain. Fibromyalgia?

Unfortunately even health care professionals toss around the term Fibromyalgia leading to many missed diagnosis & 'therapeutic misadventures' (which can be deadly). See a neurologist, & then a FMG specialist if a diagnosis isn't made. ...Read more

Could scoliosis cause mild to severe back pain and severe tension headaches?

Could scoliosis cause mild to severe back pain and severe tension headaches?

What causes chronic limb pain after amputation?

Nerves: Phantom pains occurs after an amputation and is related to the nerves being cut during the amputation.
