Hi all,

Since late 2005, I have been plagued by a constant leg/bone/muscle pain - as though there is an intermittent gnawing in both left and right thigh, only in the front affecting the front thigh muscles deep into the femur bones - In 2006 I had a burst appendix which went undiagnosed and I nearly died of toxic poisoning. Since this episode the leg pain has got worse and is more constant with each day that passes. I have recently seen a neurologist that did an ECG and has diagnosed me with depression, however he also ruled out muscular dystrophy (by just looking at me, as there is no muscular atrophy?) and bone and blood cancer (by way of various blood tests that all came back clear?). I have been on the 3 months course of anti-depressants he prescribed and although they made me feel less worrisome that something is eating at my bones they never removed the leg/bone pain? I then went to see my GP who suggested that I see an optomatrist for my blurry vision and watery eyes and a speech therapist for my slight slur in speech???? At least she prescribed me anti-inflammatories for the leg pain which help me through each day. So now I am at a loss as to who I should see. Will this pain just go away? It really is beginning to affect my work and home life. Has anyone else experience this sort of pain and how has it been cured.

Thank you for any assistance.
