Ok I am a 31 yr white female and have just been diagnosed with a 50% blockage on my Left carotid artery. I have been suffering with leg pain for years and have been wondering if this could be circulatory.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
My pain is Constant with intermittent episodes of increased pain. Increased pain lasting days or weeks at a time. Leg, foot, back and neck pain...with leg pain being the worst. Leg pain has different sensations at times. Legs burn, throbbing, heavy feeling, also feel like a tournicate on legs, also feel swollen with out any seen swelling, and feel bruised with out seen bruising.
Pain is progressively getting worse with each episode and my present bout has lasted 20 days so far...I have been having difficutly just walking for 10 of these days. Ive had difficulty walking when episodes for a few months now.
Dr.s cant seem to figure me out and I just cant live this way anymore.
I have seen my FLy Dr, a podiatrist, internal med dr, Neurologist, Chiropractor, my GYN and massage therapist about this.
I have an appt with the rehumatologist in May
EMG of both legs normal
Thyroid panel, ANA, and sed rate normal
Lower lumbar MRI normal
Brain MRI & MRA normal
RLS, MS and sciatica have all been ruled out
