    I have been having leg pain for over 9 months now. I have been to the doctor and had nerve tests done, which came back normal. Still no explaination for the pain. It feels that some one is stabbing my legs ( starting above the knee to my ankle) with forks over and over. Some days are better than others. I don't sleep well because the pain wakes me up at night. When I talk to my doctor about the pain he looks at me like I am a hypercondract. I just wonder if anyone has any ideas on what might be causing the pain. It is getting worse.  I have been prescribed Neurontin and it helps to a point, but the pain is still there.  It is driving me insane.  I am on antidepressants for bi-polar also.  I am to the point I don't know what to do anymore.
