Three years ago I began having pain and cramping in my right foot, alot of it happening on the top of my foot. Sleep was impossible. Originally the doctor thought it was a problem with the tendon at the back of the leg. Then he realized that my calf muscle had shrunk. I have been through CT scans, MRI's, Neurologists, Blood disorder doctors, Back Specialists etc. Noone has an answer for me and the pain continues. I can barely walk anymore and the strange thing is that the pain has now switched gears and the right leg is not nearly as bad, but, the left leg has now taken over with all of the same symptoms. I do have scoliosis in my lower back and yet the doctors don't really know if this has any bearing on it. All they can guess at is that I may have a pinched nerve but tests do not show any signs of it. At one point over three years ago, my chiropractor at the time was pushing me to do exercises and one of them caused my right leg to become paralyzed and have extreme muscle spasms. It took him over a week to help get me back on my feet and alleviate the pain and I truly wonder if this caused the beginning of my problems or not. Does anyone have any idea what the heck is going on with my body or have experienced anything like this? Please help, I am only 51 and I feel like 81. I have no life anymore as I'm always in pain and my family has to suffer this with me.:confused:
