I have been having cramping and pain in my right leg for over a year. The pain is behind my knee and to the inside of my leg. It is constant, gnawing burning pain and it does not go away.
Here are the tests I have taken:
X-ray of lumbar spine--nothing abnormal
MRI of lumbar spine--nothing
MRI with and without contrast of right knee--low grade, partial thickness patellofemoral chondrosis.
MRI with and without contrast of upper spine--slight scoliosis, nothing else--no tumors or evidence of MS
Ultrasound of right leg--no blood clots
I have been given:
Magnesium supplements--no help
Lyrica 50mg once daily --no help
Flexeril 10mg daily--no help
I have had:
Tarsal tunnel surgery--right foot in July 2008, pain returned a month after surgery
I feel like I must be going insane. My neurologist barely looked at my MRI results and did not view the films, so I feel like I got the shaft. He is referring me to an orthopedic something or other to see what he can do with my knee.
I also have dizziness, loss of memory (forget how to get to familiar places), have trouble driving, etc. Today the neurologist asked me if I were depressed. ***l yeah, after a year of constant pain, you bet I am depressed.
Any help is welcome.
