Hello, I am a 19 year-old male and when i was about 12 years old i was diagnosed with osggod's-slaughter(spelling?) disease which affects the connective tissue in the kneecap. I am posting now beacuse it has become extremely apparant to me that my right leg and indeed almost everything on the right side of my body is shorter, smaller or thinner then everything on my left. It feels like the right side of my body just has not grown as much as my left causing an awkward gate and difficulty in getting air into my right lung. I also notice possible abnormalities in my facial structure in that the right side of my face feels condensed or smaller then the left side. Also there is a feeling of restriction in the right testical.
This problems has been going on for over a year now, notticabely and i Believe began sometime in the spring of 2005. It drives me to extreme mental turmoil and inhibits my ability greatly to take part in activites i used to love. If anyone could suggest a diagnosis or even what type of doctor to see to obtain a diagnosis(for i have no idea) it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Scot
