My husband has been told by countless doctors they dont know whats wrong. He is 34 yrs old. His symptoms are very bad varicose veins in feet and lower calfs, the skin on his feet is badly dicoloured and red and scaley. Severe pain in legs when walking, muscle "twitches" in legs in random spots, Cramping and seizing of muscles in calfs. Pain in palms of hands, sometimes causing weakness in hands. Random "twitches" in arms, thighs (He describes the twitches as feeling like you have put you hand over a buzzing fly). He is always exhausted, and suffers occasional feverlike sypmtoms. He is a veteran and has seen numerous doctors - Its not neurological says the best neurologist in kansas. Its not arthritis of any kind says a rhuematologist. Its not Lupus. All bloodwork is normal. He does show in a bone scan very tiny fractures in his lower legs and a bone density test came back saying he has bones like he has ostioperosis - but the doctors dismissed it as a false positive test as they say he is too young to have brittle bones.
He had an injury to one leg, he broke it while running on assignment in the army - and he didnt know he broke it as he had his full kit on and kept running. Later it healed wrong because he just thought he twisted it.
Does anyone out there know anything?
