I am a female in my early twenties who has been experiencing, for about three months now, pain in both legs, more so in my thighs. I also experience a burning sensation at times along with tingling. My arms will occasionally do the same things. I have been to numerous doctors will no confirmed diagnosis. I have an abnormal Visual Evoked Potential. I am currently awaiting an MRI to rule out MS. I have had Nerve conduction studies and an EMG to rule out any damage to the peripheral nervous system and the tests were negative. The leg cramps are by far the most bothersome, with nothing relieving the pain. Does anyone know what this could be or have any suggestions as to what I should do next?

They tested the more common vitamin levels and I have had numerous blood tests to check my thyroid and glucose levels. They also tested me for lupus. All of my blood work came back fine except I had a slightly elevated hs-CRP. :( Hopefully someone will be able to figure this out soon!

  • could also be neuromyelitis opticaI recently went to a neuro-opthamologist, and they said I had no signs of "active" optic neuritis.
