He is always in a lot of pain, headaches,neuropathy pain,tingling and on right side of body and toes, burning sensations on hands and toes,muscle pain and mucle locking etc Can you tell me how I can get his physician to treat him? I also would like any information that could help us. Does this disease affect your learning? Where does it come from? What is the prognosis for this disease? Thankyou.
