Hi Doc, I am experiencing severe legs pain, causing me

Hi Doc, I am experiencing severe legs pain, causing me unable to walk or stand, using a walker to help. Although I have a herniated desk at my back, but I was told that I am not a good candidate for surgery because of my age (81) . Some doctors recommended to do a Lumbar-Sacral Rhizotomy and burned the nerves, but did not help the issue at all. The pain won't let me sleep neither if I felt to sleep, the pain awakes me up. The doctors gave me Tylenol three with coding to help a little, but the insurance now has instructions and regulations not to dispense it. Caused me to take Extra Strength Tylenol 2 pills up to two times daily but pain still there. No doctors were able to help.
I am seeking for a doctor that can figure what's exactly causing this severe pain and how can he help even if the medication that he gives help the pain a little pit so I can sleep. Thank you in advance

Hi, I was experiencing serous pain in several parts of my body: back, hands, neck, eyes, joints, and also almost everyjoint in my body. I also had severe headache and eyeache. I was serously fatigued and usually wake up at night with severe headache and eyeache which always interrupted my sleep. I decided to speak to a Doctor about my Predicament and he was kind enough to attend to me. He ran a couple of tests on me such as thyroid function ( TSH ), creatinine phosphate test. My TSH came back normal but my creatinine phosphate test value was about 3000, dont really remember the unit of measurement. He put me on predisone 2mg for 5days which I took. After the fifth day, I still had some joint pain and eyeache so he prescribed dexamethasone 5mg for 30 days. During the 30 days period of taking dexamethasone I had symptoms such as hicups, GERD , weight gain, increased appetite, a sense of increased self esteem, excess energy, and insomnia . Finally, after the 30 days I stopped taking dexamethasone I developed deadache, fever, fatigue, and ithchy rashes on my body especially my thigh, legs, and chest. The rash was so itchy that I kept itching for more than a week. Right now my Doctor is running several blood work on me to ascertain the root of my condition. I feel better but would like to know the main cause of my ill health
