Sorry to hear about your mother
What tests they have done?
Which medicines she has used so far?
Alright thanks for the information
Considering all those normal investigations she is most likely having a restless leg syndrome
She should use Pregablin or Carbamezepine to control the leg pain
Although it is not a serious issue but definitely a nuisance and can continue for a longer duration of time
But with treatment her symptoms will improve considerably

Alright in that case a possibility of fibromyalgia should be considered and she should be started on Duloxetine
It is a disorder or chronic pain syndrome associated with various other symptoms in addition to the pain
All the investigations are usually normal
It is something more in the head than an actual organic illness but it is actually very common
Duloxetine is an antidepressant but have been effective in controlling symptoms of fibromyalgia
Yes it is more of a mental illness
Cannabis oil can be of some help but I would suggest to get Duloxetine as it is a recommended treatment for fibromyalgia
Please do let me know if you have any other question
If done please leave a 5-stars feedback rating
Yes a Psychiatrist or Rheumatalogist can prescribe if your GP is not willing
you are welcome
