Yes I have leg pain too as well as numbness and pins and needles. Also having paralysis. Not sure of the cause yet as I am awaiting seeing my neurologist and neurosurgeon again. I will let you know what they say.

Technically I was diagnosed 4 years ago but I had electroconvulsive shock therapy to get me out of severe depression. This caused me to forget that I had cancer, but I always had this inkling that I had it. My anxiety and mania were too much to take and I had a psychotic break. I was also in debt and my nan passed away. We were moving house. I didn't get time to see my brothers, one of which was in a group home. I was so forgetful, forgetting to take my medications which caused me to have seizures etc. I was all over the place, in and out of hospital and noone could work out what was wrong with me. I forgot to tell them the most important thing "by the way, I have brain cancer". Anyway I have fought through so much and always come out on top. I have been close to death so many times this year. I am going back to see my neurosurgeon, neurologist and psychiatrist. I need to get more health professionals on my team. What do I do now? I have come to terms with the diagnosis and received mental health care, physical health care and financial counselling. I am just anxiously awaiting these appointments. Regarding my symptoms that are all over my body, I am worried that the cancer has spread. Thanks
