What type of test could this be?

I have an Undiagnosed condition, years of pain in legs, severe. Feels like I ran 100 miles..tight/fatigued muscles. There's a test they've done on kids to measure muscle fatigue, and measure the muscle when standing or walking... anyone know what it's called?

I’m not sure what type of test this is but have you been checked for a condition called May-Thurner Syndrome? I have this condition and it can cause muscle aches and weakness in the legs and can be very painful. Maybe you could go see an Interventional Radioligist or Vascular Surgeon to rule this condition out. Hope this might help!

Ty so much. I'll def. mention this to m y sister (it was a post about my sister). I'll have her ask her doc.. I appreciate your feedback! Sorry of the condition you've dealt with.. are there any treatments they had you try?
Compression of the Iliac Vein (May-Thurner Syndrome) is very common but rarely diagnosed as very few doctors understand this condition. Most people don’t develop blood clots or DVT’s with this condition so it’s often missed. The good news is if she does have this a simple, minimally invasive procedure can place a stent to keep the vein open and allow for proper blood flow. I had a stent placed about 5 years ago and almost overnight all the leg pain and achy/ heavyiness disappeared.
Hi Johnny... I'm sorry again you are dealing with this. I will have her mention this to her doctor. I'm so glad you had a stent and that it took away that heaviness. That's wonderful. That is what she  complains of a lot- the heavy, stiff feeling. Still no answers. :( It won't ever stop- daily... she is moaning all the time in pain. I hope SOON she finds a diagnosis after two years of this.. she will hepefully get genetic testing done soon.
