hello, i'm writing for help for my father. he has diabetes, which is mostly under control, but i'm writing for the other ailments he has that most doctors have written off as mysterious and no cure. he suffers from: tinnitus; leg cramps in his calves - only when driving; burning skin on his thighs, elbows and arms, due to taking Gavapentin (when the doctors thought he had neuropathy in his legs); and, pressure headaches - only on sides of his head. for the headaches, he can't take Excedrin because it gives him stomach problems. if anyone is also suffering from any of these or similar problems, please let me know how you are dealing with it. we are at the end of our rope! thanks.
