I had surgery back in 2003 for a torn miniscus on my right knee. After the procedure it felt as though I had a tourniquet on my thigh. Since the surgery I have had serveral problems with my leg. At times it is OK then I experience buttock numbness and leg pain. I feel a burning sensation in mainly in the right leg and midly in the left. Sleeping brings on the feeling of tingling and numbness in both of my hands. I exprience the feeling that my legs need to be strecthed, and tightness in my whole leg. I know this does sound like a lenghty list of symptoms, but I have not received a clear diagnosis from several different Doctors, 2 family MD's.- Neurologist.
I received an MRI of my brain and it shows up as very small lesions. I had another aboout a year later and it appeared as I had more. The latest appears that it did not pregress. NAy professional or non mediacal advise would be greatly appreciated. MM.
