    Welcome to the community @Kathy01! I am sorry to hear this, it sounds really uncomfortable! We aren't medical professionals so cannot give you a diagnosis, yet I hope our common understanding can offer support.

    Do you find heat or ice helps at all?

    I hope the blood test gives you some answers. :)

    Thank you Chloe
    Yes I need heat but only  for comfort. I really need my doctor to do more test which i will request when i get b12 test back. But its nice to hear what others who have the same complaint have to say. Thank you

    I too benefit from heat. All the hot water bottles! I hope your doctor takes your request more seriously and things can be looked into. :)
