Im a 25 yr old women, who has been suffering from leg problems my whole life. My mom noticed when I started walking that I favored my right leg she later noticed that I had limited mobility in my left foot. I walk with a limp I have severe left leg atrophy and I cant wiggle my toes, while most people walk heel-toe my foot just goes flat . I have been to several doctors and have had countless tests done, one doctor thought I suffered a stroke at an early age. Due to the weakness in my left leg my right leg is over worked my right leg always feels sore, tired, and the calve muscle is always tight(the pain sometime travels up my whole right side). My right legs seems to be getting bigger while my left leg is getting weaker. The last visit to a doctor it was suggested that I get a brace. I dont believe this would help. Im tired of dealing with this problem and I have no clue what this is. I was also told physical therapy probably wouldn't help. Im lost, any suggestions?
