HELP. I am desperate. I am 58 years old and diabetic. For about 15 years I have had pain in my left leg so high in the front it is just barely my leg instead of my abdomen. The pain is severe when I straighten from a bending position or stand up from sitting. In the beginning it would happen occasionaly and I could walk it out. As I got older the flareups became more often, lasted longer and more painful. Now they sometimes last for weeks. As it has gotten worse just stepping wrong will set it off. For about 2 years I have had pain in my buttocks when I'm in a flareup. Last week I was shopping and stepped sideways around a display and the pain hit. I almost went to the floor. I had to leave the store and have not been able to walk pain free since. I have seen several doctors over the years and all they want to talk about is diabetic neuropathy. Most don't even want to run tests and look for a cause. I had a CT and the doctor said it isn't arthritis. He gave me pain pills. I don't want pain pills I want to know what is wrong. Can anyone help?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
