Good, used to do nerve testing. If your nerves are "misfiring" a neurologist is a good option.

wholefoodnut, primary care physician visit cost $130 out of pocket. Medicare :-medical kicks in January so will covered by the time I get to the neurologist. Don't ask me why hospitalization started in July, but not medical.

Saying prayers for you Chris. I hope the neurologist is able to resolve the problem.

I hope that it's as easy to fix for you as it was for me a few years back. For me it was my unhealthy addiction to energy drinks, which led to unsafe levels of vitamin B12 in my bloodstream. My left leg felt like someone was pouring warm water down the back of it for over a week before I went to the doctor. Quit drinking energy drinks cold turkey, and less than a week later it stopped. This was back in my unhealthy overweight days, of course.

chadlius88, I certainly hope there's a simple fix. The first step, of course, is to identify the cause. Already had a CAT scan. Next step is an MRI and other tests.
