I have had severe leg pain for about five years now. The doctors just keep telling me that I need orthodics, but this is not helping. I have done many x-rays as well and they found nothing there. I need to know what this might be so I can go to the doctor and finally get some answers.
It started out, that I could not sit at a table because my knees would start to burn and I would have to get them up right away and even then they are extremely stiff. After time,(the pain was not isolated to my knees anymore), I could not bend them for more than twenty minutes at a time, and eventually I could not sleep with them bent. I will wake up with them buring horribly in the middle of the night, and a few times I have not been able to walk when I awoke, the pain was too much.
I also have this weird feeling, (like when your heart drops at the sight of seeing someone falling), when I see someone fall I get this feeling in my legs. That "stomach drop", actually happens in my legs!
This has gotten to the point that it effects everything I do,I am not overwieght and I am 27 year old mother of four.
I could lay in bed all day and my legs will feel the same as if I had walked all day, it dosent matter if I am on my feet or not.
Please help me understand what this could be so I can live a "normal" life with my children!
