No Diagnosis

About 5 years ago I started having swelling in my legs. These are in those stringy things that run horizontal in your inner thigh..not sure if those are called lymph nodes or fat tissue. Certain ones would swell up and hurt. I also have pain if my kids sit on my lap and compress the skin on the outer leg..this causes a severe pain. My family doctor put me off for years until it started getting worse and I asked to see a specialist. First I saw a rheumatolgist (excuse the spelling) and he took lots of blood and tested for all kinds of things. I had ultrasounds on these swollen areas and a bone scan with no results. So they sent me to another doctor who did some pressure point tests...nothing. He did ask if I had been tested for fibromyalgia (which I had not at that point) or so I didn't think so. Then I got sent to a dermatologist who did tell me what they were (and after a year I cannot remember what he said) but said that he did not know why were painful. He sent me away and said if they don't go away in 6 months to come back and he will cut one out. Okay, so that scared me away for almost a year but now they are so bad and seem to be spreading. I have them in my stomach and arms (but not as bad...YET). I also have these small hard ones that run along my lower leg bone and arm bone and they hurt as well. To top it off, my legs act up and burn and ache and pin ****k and hot baths seem to make them worse.

So, I am looking for some help, even to point me in the right direction on what type of doctor to see or what these swollen tissues are. I also have 2 herrington rods in my spine, and bad hips with nightly pain in case they may be associated.

  • :o Hi There, seems as though you have symtems simular to mine, but then in a way opposite of mine. Now how can i say this, swelling in the legs, real pain when i accidently bump something, say my fingers for instance; this is acompanied with bruises, how my doing so far ?:mad: It's begining to wear me down, are we having fun yet ? As of late i've been looking into natural cures. Now i'm not financialy prepared for anything too drastic, but seems like i may have found a place for others that can handle it. Name of the first is; Optimum Health Care Institute in California/Texas, the other; Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida, both natural health care facilitys. Myself will pursue a different avenue @ home care institute in washington. It's been totaly designed by your's truely, came about by researching books on the subject of natural cures It used to be i'd believed what the doctor said. Say for instance, take two asprins & see me in the morning, but morning came & went, still no relief. I have just recently started taking two agents Tumeric, as well as fresh water, not from the tap; The list of chemicals in tap water would fill two pages. So far i've seen a great deal of improvement, as well as other people that i converce with. So this treatment as well as help from my Lord & Saviour ***********t has helped me more than you'll ever know, although i wish that you could. My prayers will be with you & yours that you too may find the answers you seek. As Always In His Service.
