About five years ago I started experiencing a sharp pain in my right femur. It felt my leg was broken and it would not bear weight. Mobility became increasingly worse. I was living in Holland at the time and after a lot of testing the diagnosis was unspecified autoimmune disease. Rest and anti-inflammatory was would help. Skip forward to now. I moved back to usa thinking I could get better healthcare. I am practically crippled. Standing or walking more than five minutes causes unbearable pain in my legs and lower back. Sed rate is at 70. I run a constant low grade fever. I have also unexplained weight gain in my face and abdomen. My life is al last unbearable and I rarely leave my house. Neurologist performed EMG which was normal. Rheumatologist ruled out any autoimmune problems. X-rays do not show arthritis. Brain MRI was normal. Spinal MRI showed possible issue at l3/l4 but no bulging disc. Pain management dr has done two guided injections at l3/l4 which provided temporary relief. He thought possible spinal stenosis. Neurosurgeon said no and told me to do aerobics which made me hysterical as I cannot even walk. I am scared. Going to gynecologist next week to see if that may be the problem. I have had ovarian cysts in the past. Anybody seen anything like this? It is a miracle I am still employed. My quality of life is very poor and it is scary to think I won't get better.
