Here is my story. I am 49 years old. I will be 50 in 5 days ~yikes~. I have had some soreness/ aches in my left leg for about a year. I figured it was from standing at work all day or from some mild pinched nerve in my back. I mentioned it to my dr last week and she did blood work. It came back positive in the autoimmune area of the test. I had another blood test done but won't get the results back for two weeks. Many of my symptoms resemble Lupus. What I want to know is, what meds do they give you for nerve damage? I believe there is damage done already and want to know what has worked for others. I want to start as soon as possible!!
