Okay, so on my right leg ny foot turns outwards - been to doctors numerous times to be told different things from growing paints to not walking enough, this has been prominent since 13 - am 18 now! The foot and area around the ankle is really painful during walking and at rest.. this is starting to affect my daily lifestyle. I want to get a full time job but i think it'd be impossible as after walking round monday it is unbearable the rest of the week. I recently have also noticed when sitting with my feet out in front of me, toes pointing toward the ceiling - in order to point my toes upwards my knee on the painful leg points inwards toward my left leg as if my entire leg is twisted. Its been suggested i should try to walk with foot out straight as normal but it feels wrong. I have also had pain in my hip.
Can anyone suggest anything?
What it could be?
Similar experiences and what was done to help/resolve it?
Any advice/past/experience or knowledge would be gratefully received.
