SO, its been a year now and gazillion doctor visits and solid diagnosis yet as to what exactly is causing pain in my leg long bones.

Just a wee bit of medical history; I have chronic kidney disease stage 3 due to hypertension. This is under control and stable now with medications. Recent bloodwork indicated vitamin D deficiency but the issue is, bone pains started way before this, even when Vit D was checked to be sufficient.

Bone mineral density results are unremarkable.
Bone scan indicated 'shin splints' which the doctors brushed aside as insignificant.

I have to take NSAIDs almost everday i.e. tylenol extra strength and 15mg tylenol 3.

At night, It is sort of subtle but persistent pain mostly on the sides of the long bone with me feeling like wanting to stretch the legs, like, forever. Cant hardly have a decent 4-5 hrs sleep per night unless I take sedatives.

When walking, it is very sharp, burning sort of pain and it goes away in a few minutes time when I stop walking.

I will be seeing some sports medicine surgeon this week... what should I ask/suggest him to do? would a bone biopsy be warranted here? please, kindly suggest.

Sincerely,
