I am desperate for help. I am a 31 year old man. I have had severe leg pain for 4 years now, and no doctors have been able to diagnose what I have or treat it effectively. The pain is burning and deep in my leg and often feels like bone pain. It originally began in my upper right thigh, but now has spread to include the upper and lower portions of both my legs. The pain has never been in my joints. I have mild arthritis in my lower back, but no where else. I do not have the pressure points required for Fibromyalgia. I have had multiple tests including bone scans, x-rays, EMG, MRI, CAT scan, and blood work done. Every test comes back normal. The pain is constant and severe. It does not get better with rest and exercise/ movement does not make it worse. I have started to experience pain in my arms now, and I have had episodes recently when my right leg becomes more numb and tingly, but still hurts.
The doctors have tried several medications, but nothing works to relieve the pain. I am desperate for an answer. Please help!

  • This sounds like a nerve problem; have you been to a neurologist? When they did the scans, were they of your leg or of your spine?
