Burning legs at night. Could something else be causing it?
I was diagnosed with poly neuropathy about two years ago. Had symptoms–feet sensitive to bed sheets–about a year before that. It has progressed up my legs to my knees. But instead of sensitivity my legs burn at night, maybe starting an hour after I get in bed. It's barely noticeable during the day. A month ago I had an MRI. Among other age-related (79) issues, there was mild and moderate spinal stenosis is various places. Could burning come from a nerve that gets pinched when I'm lying down? My wife also has PN but along with more severe lower back issues. She gets a steroid injection in her back three or four times a years. And that knocks out her leg burning at night. My neurologist hasn't paid much attention to my MRI. But I wonder why PN would care if I'm lying down or not. (Two Old Goats lotions or frankincense and myrrh helps some.)
